Prosecutors investigate after complaints from a Swiss Christian group...

MARILYN MANSON could face criminal charges in SWITZERLAND following complaints from a religious group.

Zurich District Prosecutor Michael Scherrer announced on Tuesday that Manson was under investigation for an alleged breach of Swiss law that protects religion, according to Billboard.

The investigation also claims that the artist, real name Brian Warner, made incitements to violence during a show in Zurich back in February 2001.

The complaint was lodged by Swiss organisation Christians For Truth, who have previously tried to halt Manson‘s shows in the country. No decision has yet been made on whether to attempt to prosecute Manson.

Manson, the self-styled ‘Antichrist Superstar’ and ‘God Of Fuck’, has long been the target of Christian groups.
