KAZAKHSTAN SUPREME COURT REFUSES Â TO CONSIDER TEYMUR AKHMEDOVÂ’S APPEAL.Â The Supreme Court of Kazakhstan rejected Teymur AkhmedovÂ’s appeal of his unjust conviction....... .He was convicted for merely sharing his personal religious beliefs with others. Mr. Akhmedov has been detained since the time of his arrest on January 18, 2017.He was convicted by a district court in May and sentenced to a five-year prison term..... He is the first of JehovahÂ’s Witnesses in Kazakhstan to be criminally convicted for his religious activity since the nationÂ’s independence in 1991.
