A French court has fined the Church of Scientology for defrauding vulnerable followers.
Scientology’s Celebrity Centre and its bookshop in Paris, the two branches of its French operations, were ordered to pay €600,000 in fines for preying financially on its followers in the 1990s.
Alain Rosenberg, the French leader of a movement best known for its Hollywood followers Tom Cruise and John Travolta, was handed a two-year suspended jail sentence and fined €30,000 on the same charge.
