The Supreme Court of Kyrgyzstan will soon hear two cases involving the right to freedom of religion, association, and expression.
February 15, 2016. Jehovah’s Witnesses appealed the refusal of the State Committee of Religious Affairs to register four religious organizations. The refusal disregards the September 4, 2014, ruling of the Constitutional Chamber on this very issue.
February 24, 2016. The Osh City Prosecutor appealed the acquittals of Oksana Koriakina and that of her mother, Nadezhda Sergienko. Jehovah’s Witnesses are disappointed that the Prosecutor General’s Office will argue for the Osh City Prosecutor’s Office, since the judgments of the lower courts show a clear violation of constitutional rights.
