Russias Supreme Court Confirms Earlier Ruling to Criminalize Jehovahs Witnesses

6:07:00 PM

On July 17, 2017, in blatant disregard for Russias international commitments to protect religious freedom, the Supreme Court of Russia confirmed its earlier ruling that criminalized the activity of Jehovahs Witnesses in Russia. The decision effectively bans the worship of Jehovahs Witnesses throughout the country.

The three-judge panel of the Appellate Chamber of the Supreme Court rejected the Witnesses appeal and upheld the Courts April 20 decision by Judge Yuriy Ivanenko. He had ruled in favor of the claim filed by the Ministry of Justice to liquidate the religious organization ‘Administrative Center of Jehovahs Witnesses in Russia and the local religious organizations that are part of its structure [and] to turn over to the Russian Federation all property of the liquidated religious organization.
