UZBEKISTAN: SEVEN PROTESTANTS IN SELF-FINANCED DETENTION


Seven members of a Tashkent-based Pentecostal church are due to complete 15-day prison sentences on 25 October, imposed to punish them for attending a prayer gathering in a private home, reports Forum 18 News Service.

The seven have to pay for their own detention. Five other church members were fined. The judge refused to tell Forum 18 why the twelve had been punished for peaceful religious activity and why she had ordered Bibles and other Christian literature confiscated from them to be destroyed.

Report from the Christian Telegraph
