JWnews and Jwitness.wordpress.com are not affiliated with the official watchtower, jw-media or the jw.org sites.

Main religions: Islam; Russian Orthodox.

Kyrgyzstan overturns decision sentencing two Jehovah’s Witnesses to seven years’ imprisonment.

The defendants referred to evidence, which was ignored by the trial judge, establishing that the two DVDs were planted in their apartment most likely during a secret police raid on January 25, 2011, or during an “electricity inspection” on that same date. They also pointed to evidence that overwhelmingly proved that they are active Jehovah’s Witnesses and have never had involvement with any extremist Islamic organization.
