The prosecution brought against the French branch of the Church of Scientology has ended in a partial victory for the government, which had alleged fraud on the part of the Church. The court has ordered Church leaders and two of its operations centers to pay a 600,000 Euro fine. The Church must also advertise the news of the verdict in its publications. However, the Church can still operate in France, and plans to appeal the verdict, according to this BBC story. Here's more from CNN International.
