February 27, 1999|From Times Wire Reports

Police and secret service agents raided the Moscow Scientology center for a second day, seizing files and trying to confiscate reporters' tapes of interviews with movement leaders. An investigator said the agents will continue searches until incriminating evidence is found. Investigators said they were looking for financial irregularities, but a spokesman for the church said authorities want "to frighten the staffers and force them to renounce their beliefs."
