Defence lawyers have rested their cases in the trial of the Church of Scientology of Toronto and five members on criminal breach of trust charges.

Prosecution lawyers also said yesterday they would not call more witnesses.

The trial continues without the jury and under publication ban, as lawyers from both sides argue points concerning what they and the judge will say in their summations.

The jury returns June 17 to Ontario Court, general division, to begin hearing final addresses by counsel.

Mr. Justice James Southey's charge to the jury is expected to follow June 23.

The church and five members are charged with breach of trust in connection with "agents" infiltrating the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ontario Provincial Police, Metro police and the provincial attorney-general's office between April, 1974, and November, 1976.
