Two Russian brothers acquitted of extremism by local court!

Contrary to the persistent attempts of the prosecutor's office to recognize the two peaceful believers as "extremists", the court again issued an acquittal with the right to rehabilitation.

On June 21, 2017, the Sergiev Posad Town Court read out the verdict, which acquitted Vyacheslav Stepanov and Andrei Sivak, Jehovah's Witnesses from Sergiev Posad (Moscow Region) who had been unfairly prosecuted for 4 years. Earlier, on March 4, 2016, the court had already found those believers innocent, but at the request of the prosecutor's office the criminal case was re-examined by another judge. Wishing to justify the long-term illegal persecution of believers, the prosecutor's office again appealed against the second acquittal!

Jehovah's Witnesses are far from any manifestations of extremism, they see the persecution of believers on fictitious charges as repression.

Contrary to the persistent attempts by prosecutors to admit two peaceful believers "extremists", the court re-issued their acquittal with the right to rehabilitation.

June 21, 2017 Sergiev Posad city court announced the verdict, which acquitted Vyacheslav Stepanov and Andrew Sivak, Jehovah's Witnesses from Sergiyev Posad (Moscow reg.), Who for 4 years were subjected to unfair prosecution. Earlier, March 4, 2016, the court has already found guilty of these believers, but at the request of the prosecutor's office criminal case was reconsidered by another judge. Desiring to justify long-term illegal persecution of believers, the prosecution appealed against the acquittal of the second!

Jehovah's Witnesses are far from any kind of extremism, persecution of believers on trumped up charges they consider repression.
