Submission Church of Scientology on trial in France->

Anonymous Coward writes: "A trial opened in Paris that could spell the end of the controversial Church of Scientology in France. Seven senior French officials of the church, as well as its French headquarters — the Church of Scientology-Celebrity Centre — and the headquarters' bookshop went on trial on charges of organised fraud and operating a pharmacy without a licence. A conviction on the charges could lead to a fine of up to 5 million euros ($A8.95 million) and, more importantly, the dissolution of the church in France. The case is based on complaints filed by two women in December 1998 and July 1999."
