RUSSIA: “We still cry when we remember the burned books” | JWnews

Four Jehovah’s Witness brochures – “How to Achieve Happiness in Life”, “What Can People Hope For?”, “How to Develop a Close Relationship With God” and “What You Need to Know About God and His Meaning” – have been ruled “extremist” by two courts within a week of each other.

Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves pointed out that they had not been invited to defend the texts in the initial City Court proceedings, and that the decision violated their freedom of religion and expression.
