RUSSIA: UN Working Group condemns detentions. Trial list


Full list of 93 people currently on trial for exercising the right to freedom of religion and belief as Jehovah's Witnesses. The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has adopted a wide-ranging Opinion condemning the

"ever-growing number of Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia who have been arrested, detained and charged with criminal activity on the basis of mere exercise of freedom of religion".


Three years after the Supreme Court ordered the liquidation as "extremist" of all Jehovah's Witness associations in April 2017, 93 people are on trial

on charges of "continuing the activities of a banned extremist organisation" for exercising the right to freedom of and belief.


During the coronavirus pandemic fewer raids have been made on homes, but

have not stopped.
