A historic ruling in France concerning the Church of Scientology. A Paris court has convicted the Church of Scientology's French office, its library and 6 of its leaders of organized fraud, and fined it more than 900,000 dollars. But the court stopped short of shutting down the group as prosecutors had demanded, a finding that satisfies this Scientology official.


“The court said that Scientology should continue in France. They said it. So that's right, for sure that's right, you know.”


Scientology’s French branch says it will appeal the verdict. Meantime French investigators say the group pressured members into paying large sums of money for questionable financial gain and used commercial harassment against recruits.



Four of the Church leaders were given suspended sentences; the other two were given fines. Prosecutors had urged that the French Branch of Scientology be dissolved and fined it 3 million dollars. The Los Angeles-based Church of Scientology was founded in 1954 by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.
