Scientology trial ends in France

“Wednesday marked the last day of a three-week trial in Paris in which the Church of Scientology stood accused of fraud.         

If found guilty, the church could be forced to shut down in France, though appeals could let the case continue for years.         

Closing arguments were made Wednesday, two days after the prosecution asked for a dissolution of both the church and its Paris bookstore, and fines of 2 million euros ($2.8 million).         

A verdict is expected in September. ”
