"Tignous", illustrator and cartoonist Bernard Verlhac, was a veteran of the Scientology beat - and one of the 12 victims of the attack on the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

Back in 2009, during the first days of the original trial of Scientology for organised fraud, the press bench was packed.

There was some quiet, but tense, competition for the best seats but as the days went by, the media presence fell away and there was elbow room again.
