Conservative Catholics on trial in France

Text size Aa Aa

An association with links to a secretive Catholic group is in the dock in France over a woman’s claims that she was forced to work for over a decade for virtually no pay.

As a catering trainee, Catherine Tissier says she worked 14 hours a day, seven days a week, never saw her salary and was kept in the ideological grip of the Opus Dei movement.

It denies any wrongdoing; its supporters claims it has been the victim of discrimination in the French press.
