Joe Costello

Question:

116 Mr. Costello asked the Minister for Justice if her attention has been drawn to the activities of the Church of Scientology in Ireland; if she has received complaints about their recruitment methods and activities; if she has conducted an inquiry into their activities; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [3025/94]

I have received correspondence from Members of this House about the activities of the Church of Scientology in Ireland. However, subsequent Garda inquiries disclosed nothing of an illegal nature in relation to the activities of the church. If the Deputy has a specific complaint or information that a criminal offence has been committed, such information should be brought to the attention of the gardaí.
