You state regarding the French raids/investigation, "because that case DID result in the conviction of an adult male Family member for the corruption of minors." Sorry to contradict you, but I happen to know that no Family member was convicted of corruption of minors in that case. The person you may be referring to was a certain Paolo Savy who was not, nor ever had been a member of TF nor was he a party in the raids that took place in ‘93. He was added on the appeal filed several years later by ADFI, who contended that he was a member based on his having some Family literature in his possession. The court rejected the appeal on February 24, 2000, closing the case. Paolo Savy’s case proceeded to court, but the charges he faced were unrelated to the raids and subsequent Aix-en-Provence Family case, and final dismissal of charges against all Family members.
