Church hits at jail claim
Date: March 27, 1998
The controversial church is contacting violent criminals offering them a place on their "Criminon" rehabilitation programme.
But spokesman Graham Wilson dismissed reports that this was a strategy to recruit new members.
"This programme is running in America and judges are even placing prisoners on it because t has proved such an overwhelming success," said Wilson.
"This is a service with a proven track record which is helping re- integrate prisoners into society.
"It is misleading to say we are recruiting rapists and murderers to join our Church."
