    May I suggest that people keep their cool in order not to look too stupid if the sentence is not the one we expect this Fall ?

    I just finished an 18-minute phone interview with radio station "Eur@dio Nantes", to be edited into a later report. Hopefully I didn't mess up too badly.

    Personal message.

    David Miscavige, be careful not to mess with the judges, or anything concerning the trial.

    We keep an eye on you, and them. ANONYMOUS IS AT CAUSE. Be sure the world will know if ANYTHING happen to them.

    I am quite sure that Georges Fenech will support the judges on that issue. As the current president of the Miviludes and the prosecutor of the Lyon trial, he knows about their tactics, as he was fair-gamed then.

    France may dissolve Church of Scientology

    By Elizabeth Bryant, Religion News Service

    PARIS — In a groundbreaking case, a Paris court will decide for the first time whether to dissolve the Church of Scientology in France, which is facing charges of organized fraud.
    The demand was made by French prosecutors on Monday as they wrapped up their case against the church's Paris headquarters and bookshop. If found guilty, the institutions may also face a nearly $6 million fine.

    Six members of the church are also on trial, and may also face heavy fines along with prison sentences if convicted.

    The plaintiffs, two former Scientologists, claim the church conned them into spending tens of thousands of dollars in bogus products in the 1990s, including an "electrometer" that the church says can measure energy levels.

    But the church, which claims a membership of 45,000 in France, rejects the accusations and claims it is being persecuted.

    The plaintiffs, are "apostates who ... want to criticize their ex-religion," Fabio Amicarelli, a European Scientology representative, told French media recently.

    While the charges pose the most serious challenge to the French church to date, they are only the latest clash in a nearly two-decade long battle against Scientology. Several fraud cases have already been judged and several members convicted of embezzlement in France, where Scientology is viewed with deep suspicion.

    In one case, the head of the church's Lyons chapter was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 1996 for his role in a member's suicide.

    Founded in 1954 by late American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, the church is considered a religion in the United States with adherents that include Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

    The French government, however, lists Scientology as a sect, reflecting an official intolerance of unorthodox religions. Indeed, the government even has an official sect watchdog body — known as MIVILUDES, the Interministerial Mission for Monitoring and Combatting Cultic Deviances.

    A government report published in May said the number of religious sects had tripled in France over the past 15 years to at least 600 different movements.

    These two statements are false...

    Re: French trial: the media

    ... reflecting an official intolerance of unorthodox religions...

    Distorted point of view but still cool that USA Today write about it.

    With things to come, hopefully it will start a bigger debate in the U.S.

    Re: French trial: the media

    I find it very interesting that the cult is claiming that their religious practices are the things that are on trial.

    If fraud, bait-and-switch, and extortion are 'religious practices', then does that mean that it is impossible for $cientologists to practice their religion without breaking any laws?

    If so, then ban them with the force of a thousand W.T. Snackses.

    That's an opinion. Less bad than factual mistakes IMHO.
