Paris branch of Scientology convicted of fraud

L'Humanite, France - The Paris branch of Scientology was convicted, Thursday morning, by the Paris Court of Appeals for "organized fraud". The sect announced it will appeal ...
"It’s a first." For Georges Fenech, president of the "inter-ministerial mission for vigilance and combat against sectarian excesses", the decision pronounced yesterday morning by the Paris appeals court marks a turning point in the French saga of scientology. According to the magistrate, the judicial system had never before "so clearly condemned the scientology fraud", and the days are now numbered for the multi-national sect within the French boundaries. "Despite all their efforts to obstruct justice, scientology sees its very existence menaced in the short term," said Georges Fenech, delighted.
