Ban of legal entities

The Supreme Court rejected Jehovah's Witnesses. They are preparing complaints to the European Court


On July 17, 2017, the Russian Supreme Court missed the last chance to restore law and justice for 175,000 Russian citizens who profess the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses. It took a panel of three Supreme Court judges less than an hour of deliberations to uphold the decision made earlier by Judge Yuriy Ivanenko to liquidate and ban all registered organizations of this religion without exception.

Since there are no more effective domestic remedies, believers will appeal to the European Court of Human Rights and other international organizations.
