      Fiasco for French justice as paedophile trial collapses - 12/1/05 "Five men
      and a woman who were convicted of child sex offences a year ago were cleared on
      appeal today at the end of one of France's most embarrassing judicial
      fiascos. The acquittal at the Paris appeals court came a day after an unprecedented
      apology by a leading state prosecutor, who told the six that their trial had
      been a "veritable catastrophe". "The appellants were among 17 people from the
      northern town of Outreau who were tried in May 2004 after a three-year
      investigation into an alleged paedophile ring. Charges against all but the two couples
      at the centre of the affair have now collapsed."
