Prosecutors in Samara Region are taking a high-flying businessman to task for forcing his employees to go on scientology courses. The director of electronics company RosKabelSvyaz Lev Syrolev was threatening to sack faithless workers, but now faces charges for using extremist material.

“These practices are illegal and violate laws on combating extremist activity, labour laws, as well as the constitution of Russia,” Prosecutors said in a press release. The Surgut city court considers the ideas of L Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s founder, to “justify violence, and in particular ways to combat critics of scientology.”

“The works of Hubbard present demands for social and religious discord, to promote the superiority and inferiority of people based on their social and religious affiliation, and to commit crimes for reasons of ideological and religious hatred,” Interfax reported.
