LAST MINUTE
The Oriol Court extends the preventive detention of Dennis Christensen
On February 22, 2018, Judge Aleksey Rudnev, of the District Court of Zheleznodorozhniy in Oriol, decided to keep Dennis Christensen in preventive detention until August 1, 2018. Mr. Christensen is being prosecuted for organizing the activity of a religious organization that has been declared an extremist. In fact, he was arrested while attending a Christian religious meeting that was assaulted by the police in May 2017.

The preliminary hearing began on February 19, the period during which the judge deferred the decision on motions that both parties presented. However, at the February 22 hearing, the judge denied all motions filed by Mr. Christensen's lawyers and decided to extend his preventive detention. The criminal trial will be on February 26 at 2:30 p.m.

Jehovah's Witnesses around the world are concerned about Mr. Christensen's well-being and pray that his wife, Irina, can persevere with the support of her husband. He has already been in preventive prevention for nine months.

On February 26, 2018, the start of the main hearings on the criminal case against Denis Christensen was scheduled. He is accused of continuing the activities of the Jehovah's Witness organization, which was liquidated by the court. In fact, Christensen has nothing to do with this organization. He only used the right that "everyone" is guaranteed by the Constitution of the Russian Federation, that is, the right to have religious beliefs and to act in accordance with them.

NOTE FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS GROUP:
I feel a deep shame for the theatrical show that is giving the Russian justice, a simple puppet in the hands of the government and the Russian Orthodox sect. Thousands of Russians gave their lives in World War II to reign democracy and freedom of religion in their country. The current government, mamporrero of the Orthodox sect, has destroyed this registry of martyrs. Our brother Denis is being TORTURED in a demonic way for serving the Almighty Jehovah. Pray for him and others unjustly treated.

      On May 24, 2019, Markus Grübel, the German Commissioner for Global Freedom of Religion, spoke in connection with the fact that the Russian appellate court upheld the sentence of Dennis Christensen. “I regret the decision of the court that rejected the appeal in the case of Christensen,” said Markus Grübel. “I am concerned about the situation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia. Freedom of religion and ideology is an important human right. Every state should respect it. Religious freedom is indivisible and is valid for all religious communities.”

      El tribunal de la región rusa de Oriol confirmó este 23 de mayo del 2019 la pena de 6 años de prisión al danés Dennis Christensen, seguidor de Testigos de Jehová, culto prohibido en Rusia en 2017.
      El danés, de 46 años, de los cuales 20 con residencia en Rusia, fue condenado en febrero de ese año tras ser declarado culpable de extremismo por ser miembro activo de Testigos de Jehová, y el tribunal regional desestimó este jueves 23 de mayo la apelación presentada por su defensa.

      “Aquellos que saben qué ocurre con los Testigos de Jehová en Rusia deben sentir vergüenza por su país. En el siglo XXI en un Estado de derecho son inadmisibles las acusaciones y delaciones falsas, así como las torturas”, declaró Christensen en su último alegato antes de que el tribunal rechazara la apelación.

      El danés aseguró que fue condenado solo por ejercer la libertad de culto, derecho consagrado en la Constitución de Rusia. La defensa de Christensen anunció que recurrirá la decisión en instancias superiores.

      “La decisión de las autoridades rusas de dejar en vigor esta condena es un atentado contra el derecho a la libertad de culto y de reunión”, denunció la investigadora de Amnistía Internacional (AI).

      Según AI, la decisión de Rusia de considerar Testigos de Jehová como organización extremista es una grave violación a la libertad de culto. En el país se han abierto 74 causas penales contra quienes siguen esta religión, con un total de 188 imputados.

      Mientras el mundo condena el hecho de que en Rusia se sentencia a Testigos de Jehová a duras penas de cárcel por el único crimen de practicar su fe, China aplaude dicha persecución.
      Massimo Introvigne
      El 6 de febrero de 2018, un tribunal ruso condenó al ciudadano danés Dennis Christensen a seis años de cárcel por participar en actividades de los Testigos de Jehová, un grupo prohibido en Rusia. Luego de la condena de Christensen, la policía está implementando una nueva ola represiva en varias provincias rusas, arrestando a más Testigos de Jehová. En Rusia, los Testigos de Jehová fueron “liquidados” en el año 2017 bajo acusaciones de “extremismo”. Las reacciones de organizaciones internacionales y países democráticos contra estas decisiones han sido unánimes, desde el Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos hasta la Unión Europea, la cual solicitó que “el Sr. Christensen sea liberado de forma inmediata e incondicional” y que los Testigos de Jehová “puedan disfrutar pacíficamente de la libertad de asambleasin injerencias, tal y como lo garantiza la Constitución de la Federación Rusa, así como también los compromisos internacionales efectuados por Rusia y las normas internacionales de derechos humanos”.
      No obstante, Rusia puede contar con un aliado “inmediato e incondicional”, China. El Partido Comunista Chino (PCCh) es consciente de que la noción de “movimientos religiosos extremistas” es sustancialmente la misma que la categoría de xie jiao en China.
      Tal y como señaló el académico procedente de Hong Kong, Ed Irons, en China, el “sitio web chino antisectas” es considerado como la voz del PCCh en lo que respecta a temas relacionados con cualquier grupo identificado como una “secta”, y sus declaraciones gozan de un estatus semioficial. Mientras el mundo esperaba la sentencia de Christensen, este sitio web relacionado con el PCCh publicó un detallado artículo en apoyo de la posición rusa con respecto a los Testigos de Jehová. “Es razonable que los Testigos de Jehová sean estrictamente controlados o incluso completamente prohibidos” (“耶和华见证人”受到严厉控制甚至全面取缔乃属情理之中), afirmaba el artículo. El mismo mencionaba una lista interminable de acusaciones de naturaleza antisectaria contra los Testigos de Jehová.
      Existe una diferencia entre la persecución rusa de “grupos extremistas” y la represión china llevada a cabo contra los xie jiao. Mientras el PCCh intenta protegerse a sí mismo contra cualquier posible amenaza proveniente de movimientos religiosos que considera hostiles al Partido, Rusia intenta proteger la posición monopolística de la Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa, un aliado incondicional del régimen, contra cualquier competencia no deseada.
      El sitio web chino antisectas no parece apreciar completamente esta diferencia. El sitio apoya la postura rusa que afirma que los testigos de Jehová deben ser prohibidos porque “amenazan a la religión rusa predominante: la reputación y el entorno vital de la Iglesia Ortodoxa” (而且威胁着俄罗斯主流宗教——东正教的声誉和生存环境) y porque están “erosionando los cimientos de la Iglesia Ortodoxa” (也在明显侵蚀着东正教的根基). El hecho de que la Iglesia Ortodoxa deba ser protegida de sus críticos es un comentario curioso en una publicación realizada por el PCCh, a pesar de que dentro del PCCh hay quienes argumentan de manera similar que el monopolio de la fe cristiana protestante de la Iglesia de las Tres Autonomías controlada por el PCCh debería ser igualmente protegido.
      En China existe una presencia clandestina de Testigos de Jehová, con cifras difíciles de evaluar. Los mismos no están incluidos en la lista de xie jiao, pero sus actividades son consideradas ilegales y Bitter Winter ha informado sobre medidas enérgicas implementadas contra actividades misioneras de los Testigos de Jehová que llegan a China desde Corea.

      RUSSIA / DENNIS CHRISTENSEN ..
      Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ• (From: Eduardo Diaz) Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ•
         April 9, 2018.
         The lawyer Bogvadov who takes the case of Danish Dennis Christensen in Russia accused of "Religious Extremist", requested time in court on the day of the trial, to be able to review the material available for his case, since due to circumstances beyond his control only I had been able to examine 8 of the 12 available folders. Nor was Christensen familiar with the available evidence collected by investigators, such as photographs, and video recordings, as well as some objects seized as a result of the search. To this request, the public prosecutor Fomin was against to grant time to Christensen, because I consider it something intentional to leave the case. But shortly after some negotiations with the translator Uskov about the technical possibilities in the legal field, to allow the lawyer and the accused to become familiar with the available materials of the case. The Judge granted a partial motion to the defense. Giving Dennis Cristensen and his lawyer the opportunity to review and become familiar with the 12 folders but not with the available evidence. The trial will resume on Monday, April 23 at 10:30 a.m.
         At the end of the session, the audience was allowed to be composed of his wife and, in large part, by friends and brothers, who could confirm his love and affection as well as share words of encouragement and tell him how the whole brotherhood supports him, since he is in thousands of prayers all over the world, Dennis was grateful for such expressions of affection.

      Our brother Dennis Christensen, imprisoned in a Russian jail since May 2017 awaiting trial, has been sentenced to another 3 months, so he must be locked up in difficult conditions until 23 February 2018. He can then be sentenced to several more years.
      Judge Andrei Tretyakov during the 3-hour hearing did not satisfy the defense's request to replace the preventive measure in a softer one, such as house arrest. In addition, the court did not take into account the formal guarantees of the Royal Danish Embassy (the brother is a Danish citizen) who, for humanitarian reasons, has given assurances that he does not provide a new passport for Christensen captured by the investigators and is not going to Promote your trip outside the Russian Federation.
      Dennis Christensen is completely innocent.
      I will persist in denouncing the shameful repression on this and all the other Russian witnesses, with an attitude towards defenseless and innocent people. - https://jw-russia.org/news/17112020-262.html

      "Memorial" recognized the political prisoner of the believing Jehovah's Witness from Denmark Dennis Christensen
      The case against Christensen is one of the first in the campaign to prosecute Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia.
      Denmark's national Dennis Ole Christensen, a believing Jehovah's Witness who lives in Orel, is charged with committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 282.2 (organization of the activity of a religious organization in respect of which a decision was made to liquidate in connection with the implementation of extremist activities) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. According to the investigation, Christensen heads the religious organization of Jehovah's Witnesses in Orel.
      FSB officers detained Christensen on May 25, 2017 during a meeting in a building on Zheleznodorozhnaya Street, where the Oryol Jehovah's Witnesses together read the Bible. On May 26, Svetlana Naumova, a judge of the Sovietsky District Court of Orel, decided to select a preventive measure in respect of him in the form of detention.
      The case against Christensen was one of the first in the campaign to prosecute Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia, which intensified sharply after the Supreme Court on April 20, 2017 decided to recognize the Jehovah's Witnesses' Center in Russia as an extremist organization. Moreover, Christensen became the first in the modern history of Russia, a Witness of Jehovah, who was deprived of his freedom due to religious affiliation.
      The decision to select a preventive measure against Christensen states that he allegedly "committed organizational actions aimed at continuing the illegal activities of the IDPs of Jehovah's Witnesses" Eagle "and expressed in the convocation of meetings of JWO Jehovah's Witnesses" Eagle "..., the organization of preaching activities, the distribution of financial Funds of IDPs of Jehovah's Witnesses "Eagle".
      In our view, the charges against Christensen only on the basis that he is a believing Jehovah's Witness are discriminatory and violate international legal acts, in particular the right to freedom of religion. The decision of the Oryol regional court to recognize the extremist local religious organization (LRO) of Jehovah's Witnesses "Eagle" and its liquidation and the decision of the Supreme Council to recognize the Russian "Jehovah's Witnesses" as an extremist organization and ban its activities in the country do not have legal grounds and contradict Art. 28 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation guaranteeing the right to freedom of conscience and religion.
      We demand an immediate end to the persecution of Dennis Christensen and other Jehovah's Witnesses who are persecuted for their religious affiliation.
      Recognizing a person as a political prisoner or being persecuted for political reasons does not mean either the consent of HRC "Memorial" with his views and statements, nor the approval of his statements or actions.

    • You are always accusing GB of being dictators but this proves you wrong.  Personal conscience is recognized.  There are so many things which are left to personal conscience - such as blood reactions. Personally, I think jehovah loves Turkey because he made them.  It is the humans which use them for the wrong purpose.  Just as humans misuse blood without the respect for the life it represents.
    • Yes, christiandom had a big role to play in the suppression and even the extermination of the "savages", especially in spanish south America.  The wars between protestant and catholic took their toll in Europe just before the new world opened up.  Christendom has a lot to answer for before jehovah. I come from the stock of huguenots who fled from France to South Africa and started the wine industry there. They obtained slaves from Malaysia and some intermarried. Our language has many French and Malaysian influences which is different from current Dutch. When I visited the Spanish fort  close to Jacksonville, florida,  I discovered that the Spanish massacred the huguenots who fled from France to Florida for religious freedom.  The details were shocking. Christendom's history is blood thirsty and oppressive of the people under its dominion.  At the beginning of our organization these attitudes were not immediately stomped out.  The brothers focussed on the other truths that were new such as the mortality of the soul, jehovahs name and so forth. But thanks to jehovah we now have a miracle of unity and love all over the earth..... only Jehovahs spirit can allow people to make these drastic changes in their own hearts and attitudes.  In South Africa it is very clear...... the brothers who take the lead are wonderful and mostly black..... trained in the scriptures.       
    • The good thing, some people go first! 😊 I'm glad you agree. Your word manipulation needs some serious polishing. Exactly, I'm still waiting on evidence without ex-witness manipulation. It really would. It would prove more in the sense of facts, not self indulged fantasies. Only because you claim to be. Not that you are. The thing about a good researcher, is learning how to do, good research. Since Russell's writings are exactly the ones I submit without bias.
    • Agreed.  What they want is a government which will outlaw the bible and Jesus (I think of Matt 24 where it indicates that those having faith in jesus' randsom sacrifice will be persecuted). California recently tabled a law which would have basically outlawed the bible - but it did not pass...... but how long before it does?  We cannot be deceived to take sides because some political party is 'perceived'  as loving God a little more than the other side and fights infantacide...... when they are in fact - the beast.  The racial hatred and injustice in USA has tripled in the past few years because of official statements made,  perceptions created and the outrageous reaction of the opposing press......it is like a cold civil war going on. On the other side of the beast is the secular, humanist, feminist, LGBTQ, materialist goals and this side has a stated hate for the God of the bible and its white supremacist leaders... (again a generalization:  but its members belong to a party who loves Islam and shuns the bible's values - even if they go to church.)  For us as JWs - there is no choice between the two...... because both are playing their part to lead us to Armageddon..... the one a little faster than the other. Human government sucks and it gets clearer and clearer every day.  We should keep focussed on Jehovahs government.... watch just enough news to know where things are going..... and keep focussed on preaching and building each other up.
    • There are dozens. When I mentioned going back 300 years I was thinking that a lot of people start with Matthew Henry's from the 1700's. https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/mhc/Dan/Dan_004.cfm?a=854001 But there are many more modern ones these days that might appear too long, but that's partly because they also reprint the entire Bible text, split up into sections. https://wernerbiblecommentary.org/?q=node/732 https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/jfb/Dan/Dan_004.cfm?a=854001 https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/smith_chuck/c2000_Dan/Dan_001.cfm?a=854001 The Chapter 4 portion of this one, above, includes the following supposition: The seven times are probably a year and three quarters. Referring to the summer, fall, winter, spring, rather than seven years. And so for a year and three quarters, king Nebuchadnezzar was to be insane. He was to live with the ox and out in the field. He was to eat grass like a wild animal. This was to continue until he realize that the God in heaven is the One who rules over the earth as far as establishing kingdoms and setting in power those whom He will. God still rules in the overall sense. And sometimes God puts evil men into power in order to bring judgment upon the people. But God rules over all. So after Daniel interprets, he said, "Now look, king, straighten up, man. Live right. You know, it may be that you can increase the days of your peace because you know this is going to come on you. But maybe by living right you can forestall it a bit." [Others have guessed 7 "time periods" were 7 months. But the point is, that we don't know for sure] https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/guzik_david/StudyGuide2017-Dan/Dan-4.cfm?a=854001 That one, above, includes the idea that if there is any further prophetic significance to the dream, that it could mean this: Some find prophetic significance in this account. Since Babylon is used in the Scriptures as a figure of the world system in general, we can say: · Nebuchadnezzar’s madness foreshadows the madness of Gentile nations in their rejection of God. · Nebuchadnezzar’s fall typifies Jesus’ judgment of the nations. · Nebuchadnezzar’s restoration foreshadows the restoring of some of these nations in the millennial kingdom.  
    • This is so typical.....loved this experience !  People are people, and their ideas on neutrality are not the same - even after the lessons have been repeated over and over  in the watchtower.  Keeping neutral .... but not understanding what true neutrality is.   Neutrality does not mean you are not supposed to know what is happening around you or that someone has to be silenced when they mention something ... But I reckon.... this is where true humility comes into play and for the sake of peace,  refrain from having  your say.  It can also come back to bite you. There is a time to keep silent. Neutrality is making a choice every time an issue comes up.  Granted, it us hard not to take sides when you have an idea about who is lying in a particular situation....!  But deceit and lying is all part of the political game. These politicians gave up something to be where they are.  Truth and sincerity are replaced by ambition and lies and many hidden deals.  I am astounded at the open nepotism tolerated everywhere in Washington- on both sides of the isle! People have truly lost their moral compass!   And the staggering amounts of money to be made ....... poor politicians become multi-millionaires pretty quickly .... and so do their children make tons of money and extend their influence in other countries!   These days, no politician  can fight a clean fight and expect to win..... too much spying,  false leaks in the news, misinformation and outright acrimony.  I do watch world news and events to see fulfillment of bible prophecy.  No matter who wins the next election - USA is on a downward spiral and the spectators will be agast when they realise the plane is totally out of control.  The speed of the decent depends on who is next elected....... the speed of the decent may be fast or slow.  The self-deceit of the public is amazing and helped by the press who mostly tell the public what they want to hear.   America will still exist when the end comes but it will have handed over it power willingly to the eighth king....... So, if a certain party - which is very willing to hand over its autonomy, wins - then I will gauge that the decent will be faster than i anticipated......  The "clay and iron" has reached a point of  irreconcileability......and this same scenario is playing out in Europe, Australia, Canada etc.  (Bible so accurate in its predictions) . In the meantime Russia, China and all their allies are extending their economic influence and territories. It is really now just a matter of time then things will truly become ugly and we will know that we have arrived at the time we were waiting for!  We will see jehovah in action!
