RUSSIA’S MINISTRY OF JUSTICE MOVES TO BAN JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES IN RUSSIA

"Russia’s Supreme Court has [recently] heard the testimony of four former members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses who said they were subjected to ‘total control’ by the organization and brainwashed against receiving higher education or starting a family.

In its lawsuit to outlaw the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Justice Ministry pointed to various violations in the organisation’s activities revealed during a surprise inspection, including breaches of the Law on Counteracting Extremist Activities.

The ministry has asked the court to declare the organization and its 395 local branches as extremists, ban their activity and seize property."
