Omelchenko lawyer intercedes for the recovery of craft books that were considered "extremist" and which formed the basis of this lawsuit to ban Jehovah's Witnesses religion. Counsel emphasizes that it is necessary to study the question of whether these statements are dangerous enough that on this basis significantly restrict the right of 300 thousand Russian citizens. He draws attention to the legal requirement that the restrictions must be justified and proportionate to the constitutionally significant goals.
Omelchenko provides examples of statements in the publications of Jehovah's Witnesses, because of which these publications were recognized as extremist.
The court adjourned until April 6, 2017 14:00.
