COURT IN VORONEZH MITIGATES MEASURE OF RESTRICTION OF TEN ADHERENTS OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES
Interfax-Religiia, 3 December 2020
The Lenin district court of Voronezh changed the measure of restriction of ten adherents of Jehovah's Witnesses (an organization forbidden in the R.F.), imposing on them a ban on certain activities, Interfax was told at the court.
"The court declined the petition of the investigator for extending the detention in custody for six Jehovah's Witnesses and also for another four who are under house arrest. For all of them, the measure of restriction selected was a ban on certain activities," a source told the news agency.
At the present time, all who had been held in a SIZO on this case have been released.
As was reported, in mid-July the Lenin district court of Voronezh placed in custody ten previously detained adherents of the Jehovah's Witnesses organization, which is forbidden in Russia, who were suspected of extremism. Later four of them were placed under house arrest. (tr. by PDS, posted 3 December 2020)
