The Charity Commission is looking into a charity with links to the Church of Scientology that allegedly left vulnerable people “panicking” and in “trance-like states”.

The regulator said it opened a compliance case into the drug rehabilitation charity Narconon UK in response to concerns raised by the media.

The Observer newspaper last month published the results of its investigation into an East Sussex facility run by the charity.

The charity said the article painted a “profoundly false picture” of its work.

The Observer investigation found allegations that patients were expected to follow repetitive commands for “hours at a time”.

The article said: “People were expected to follow repetitive commands, such as pointing at objects, sitting perfectly still or answering the same question ‘over and over again’.

“Some described suffering extreme reactions to the exercises, such as panicking, zoning out or going into trance-like states.

“One person said it felt like their mind had been ‘shattered into a million pieces’.”
