The Newly Established Cassation Court of General Jurisdiction Made Its First Decision on Jehovah's Witnesses. And It Is in Favor of Believers

Kemerovo Region

On December 23, 2019, the Eighth Cassation Court of General Jurisdiction overturned the decision recognizing as legal the six-month extension of the detention of Kemerovo citizens Sergey Britvin and Vadim Levchuk. Although the believers have already left for six months in jail, it is important that this is now recognized as unlawful and unfounded.
