UPDATE: According to British journalist Mary Finnigan, French police are now involved in investigating Sogyal and Rigpa.

Acting director of Rigpa, Dzongsar Khyentse, stated in his recent address to the Rigpa board on the topic of the Lewis Silkin (independent) report on abuses of students and retreat participants, that Vajrayana gurus are "above the law". It would see that the French gendarmerie disagree.

The French government takes a sterner stance against
cults than the English speaking countries do.

In the 16th Century, France was nearly destroyed as a nation
when local barons used religious differences as a pretext to
reject the central administration, and foreign monarchies
exploited these wars of religion to weaken France.

Later, the French nation preserved itself by creating a consensus
around a secular French identity.

As a result the French government has a healthy distrust of
anyone who uses religion to create a personal fiefdom that
is outside of the law and routes quantities of cash to
foreign countries (India) and into untraceable bank accounts.
