committee to investigate cults

||"Cults in France",
first report of the committee to investigate cult. Includes a laundry
list of 172 allegedly dangerous cults.
||French decree establishing an
"Inter-ministerial Mission to Fight Againt Cults"
||National Assembly approves the
Senate approves the anti-cult law in its amended text. It is now
enough that a cult (or its de facto leader/s) has been found guilty once
(as opposed to "repeatedly", as per the previous text) of a
serious crime in order for it to be banned. On the other hand, the
possibility for the cities to forbid "cultic" activity within
a 200-meter radius from a public building has disappeared from the text.
