The Tenth Criminal Case for Christian Convictions in Krasnoyarsk Territory; 62-year-old Believer Accused of Extremism

Krasnoyarsk Territory

On March 25, 2020, investigator K. Zhuikov opened a criminal case against Anatoliy Gorbunov, a 62-year-old resident of Krasnoyarsk. The believer is accused of promoting an “extremist organization” for meeting with fellow believers “… in order to continue the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses” contrary to the ban, the accusation alluding to and misconstruing a decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of April 17, 2017. In reality, the Supreme Court did not prohibit the worship of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
