epa01911948 View of the Church of Scientology building at 7 rue Jules Cesar in Paris, France, 27 October 2009. Classified as a sect in France, it has been sentenced jointly with seven of its members for illegally prescribing drugs. The court handed out the verdict and fined the sect for misleading and cheating on vulnerable followers, but a recent change in the law prevented French Justice from banning it outright. Scientology's Celebrity Centre and its bookshop in Paris, the two branches of the sect's French operations, were ordered to pay 600,000 euros in fines for preying financially on its followers in the 1990s.
