Once again it seems Scientology is in potentially serious trouble in France.

Two officials of the French branch of Scientology have been placed under official investigation for “fraud and complicity in illegally practicing pharmacy,” reports AFP.

Allegations involve the use of high dosages of vitamins and giving “personality tests” without a scientific basis, ultimately as a means “to obtain money.”

In the United States its unlikely authorities would bother Scientology over such matters.

But in France Scientology does not have the special status of a recognized religion and is instead identified as a “cult.”

Scientologists claim they have “10,000” members in France.

However, membership claims routinely made by the organization have never been objectively verified.

Some say that Scientology may actually have less than 100,000 truly active members worldwide.
