"The Church of Scientology has gone on trial in the French capital, Paris, accused of organised fraud.[BBC News]
The case centres on a complaint by a woman who says she was pressured into paying large sums of money after being offered a free personality test. The church, which is fighting the charges, denies that any mental manipulation took place. France regards Scientology as a sect, not a religion, and the organisation could be banned if it loses the case."
