The Cour de Cassation, France's highest appeals court, threw out the Scientolgists' appeal against fines of 200,000 euros on its bookshop and 400,000 on its Celebrity Centre in Paris, as well as two-year suspended sentences and 30,000-euro fines on five sect members, including its leader in Paris, Alain Rosenberg.

It agreed with lower courts that the church had targeted emotionally fragile people for financial gain.

But it did cancel damages awarded to a complainant who had dropped out of the case.
