A German court in Berlin has ruled that Scientology is guilty of libel for deliberately spreading false and intentionally biased information about Robert Minton in its German Freedom magazine, known as Freiheit, and in fliers distributed in Germany. The judge found that Scientology libeled Minton regarding his role in Nigerian debt buy-back operations between 1988 and 1993, and also concerning his loan to Ursula Caberta, head of the Hamburg Working Group on Scientology.
