In Kamchatka, two innocent believers have been held in a temporary detention facility for the second day

Kamchatka Territory

On the evening of November 13, 2016, after a search of Jehovah's Witnesses in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, two believers came to the building to repair a broken window. There they were detained for allegedly disobeying police officers. These believers were placed in a temporary detention facility (IVS). Prior to the publication of this report, the police had not submitted the case file to the court for trial.

Jehovah's Witnesses strongly object to labelling them "extremists," emphasizing that extremism is deeply alien to their biblically based views and morals.
