  1. Norway is the great catalyst that will force the GB to start thinking about basic human rights, as currently there is a lot of discussion in the Norwegian Government about " ... Why are we giving the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society Norwegian dollars (Kroners) every year from Tax money for their charities ... for EACH and every of the approximately 112,000 JWs in Norway (paraphrased), when they prohibit their members to vote"... which THEY consider to be an inalienable, and non-negotiable human right of all peoples, everywhere. The WTB&TS is currently being governed by the Lawyers, Accountants, and the Finances department, with the GB not admitting being personally responsible for ANYTHING. What we consider "reasonable", they consider EXTREMIST, and many European nations give tax money to ALL legitimate churches, without restriction on how they spend it. By violating what these governments' and peoples' basic understanding on what constitutes extremism, soon, if not already, it is going to affect the flow of cash into the Society's Treasury. One of several major concerns of the Governing Body is to not hemorrhage money, as it has been doing for years in the constant Child Sexual Abuse court cases. THIS is what will drive any change .... not love ... not justice ...not fairness .... MONEY! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By the way .... has the Society recently decided that voting is a matter of personal conscience? What I have read is so "weasel worded", I cannot tell.
  2. Armenia lost the case before the representatives of Jehovah's Witnesses at the ECHR * EREVÁN, March 7, 2018, 00:42 - REGNUM Armenia lost the next case before the European Court of Human Rights. This time, the case concerns four representatives of the religious organization "Jehovah's Witnesses" (an organization whose activities are prohibited in the Russian Federation). The ECHR found that Armenia violated the ninth article of the European Convention (violation of freedom of thought and religion) in its respect. According to the verdict of the court, the Armenian authorities are obliged to pay the claimants, in three months, 48,000 euros (12,000 each). Russian Su-57 attacked American militants and instructors Bold: Ukraine is hitting Russia unexpectedly The United States experienced a new weapon of mass destruction in the Black Sea MEMBER NEWS Four plaintiffs in 2011 were prosecuted for refusing to submit to compulsory military or alternative service. On July 17, 2017, the judicial board of the Supreme Court of Russia decided to reject the organization's appeal against the resolution on its liquidation. On April 20, the Supreme Court of Russia recognized the Jehovah's Witnesses as an extremist organization and liquidated it. Their activities are prohibited in the territory of the country. Syria in a stream of lies: about fighters in the United States, killed by blows Su-57 Arab media: Shoigu avenged the "PWC Wagner" MEMBER NEWS Recognize that the organization "Jehovah's Witnesses" forbade and confiscated all their properties for the extremism that previously required the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. The lawsuit agency noted that "Jehovah's Witnesses" (an organization whose activities are banned in the Russian Federation) are promoting the idea of their exclusivity and superiority over other religions, which represents a threat to public order. In addition, the organization repeatedly ran into violations of the law and did not take any action to eliminate them. - https://regnum.ru/news/2387940.html
  3. We just found out The European court of human rights accepts the appeal of Jehovah's witnesses!! ??? The organization wants to be heard by its liquidation in Russia. https://ria.ru/religion/20170918/1504977519.html
  4. On June 10, 2010, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled that the dissolution of a congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses by a Russian court violated Articles 9 and 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The court found that in enacting the ban, the Russian government denied the congregation its rights to religious freedom, a right described by the court as "one of the foundations of a 'democratic society.'" The Russian government had attempted to defend the ban, citing the limitations of Article 9, which allow restrictions on religious activity that are prescribed by law, that pursue the aim of maintaining public health, safety and morals, and that are necessary in a democratic society. The Russian government argued that the Jehovah's Witnesses had forced converts to break ties with their families and that the congregation infringed on the rights of citizens by restricting members' employment opportunities, utilized "mind control" techniques, and encouraged suicide through the congregation's absolute prohibition on blood transfusions and organ donation.
  5. MOSCOW, May 22 (RAPSI) – The Jehovah’s Witnesses organization banned in Russia as extremist has filed a complaint with the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe over Moscow’s refusal to implement a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). A copy of the application has been published on the website of the Council of Europe. In March 2004, the Golovinsky District Court has granted prosecutors motion seeking to liquidate Jehovah’s Witnesses in Moscow (Moscow LRO). Following that, the religious organization lodged a complaint with ECHR. In June 2010, ECHR ruled in favor of applicants and ordered Russia to pay them € 20,000 in compensation and €50,000 in respect of costs and expense. The Russian government has refused “to implement the above-mentioned judgment,” according to the application filed with the Council of Europe. “The situation is now critical. On April 20, 2017, the Supreme Court of Russia granted the application of the Ministry of Justice of Russia and banned Jehovah’s Witnesses nationwide and ordered the liquidation of their national legal entity, the Administrative Centre of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia (Administrative Centre), and 395 local religious organizations (LROs) of Jehovah’s Witnesses, including the Moscow LRO. This is now the second time the applicant organization has been liquidated”, the complaint signed by lawyer John M. Burns reads. The Supreme Court of Russia banned Jehovah's Witnesses as extremist organization in April 2017. The Justice Ministry said that violations of the law “On Combatting Extremism” had been revealed during inspection conducted in the organization. The Prosecutor General’s Office’s notice concerning inadmissibility of carrying out extremist activities by Jehovah's Witnesses has taken effect, the Ministry said. Jehovah’s Witnesses religious organization has had many legal problems in Russia. Since 2009, 95 materials distributed by the organization in the country have been declared extremist and 8 Jehovah's Witnesses’ branches have been liquidated. Jehovah's Witnesses is an international religious organization based in Brooklyn, New York. Since 2004 several branches and chapters of the organization were banned and shut down in various regions of Russia. http://rapsinews.com/judicial_news/20170522/278673058.html
  6. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that Turkey violated the right to freedom of religion of a group of Jehovah Witnesses in İzmir and Mersin through “direct interference” by refusing to grant them appropriate places of worship. The Association for Solidarity with Jehovah Witnesses and others appealed against the ECHR against Turkey in June 2010 and complained that national authorities refused to grant a place of worship status to their houses of worship while also rejecting their requests to provide access to places of worship. In the appeal, the association claimed Turkey violated the group’s right to freedom of religion (Article 9), right to a fair trial (Article 6) and freedom of assembly and association (Article 11). The group added that they did not benefit from the right to an effective remedy (Article 13) and were discriminated against over their membership to a minority religious community – a violation of prohibition of discrimination (Article 14). The aforementioned difficulties arose from a Turkish Law No. 3194 on Urban Planning which prohibits the opening of places of worship on sites which were designated for other purposes in local development plans. The same law also established a number of conditions to build places of worship. Accordingly, even a small place of worship must have a surface area of at least 2,550 square meters. The private premises which were used by Jehovah’s Witnesses in the southern province of Mersin and the Aegean province of İzmir were closed down by authorities for being “unlawful.” Appeals by the believers for the allocation or use of alternative premises as places of worship were also turned down by courts. In its decision, the ECHR ruled that “the impugned rejections by the authorities amounted to such a direct interference with their freedom of religion that it was neither proportionate to the legitimate aim pursued nor necessary in a democratic society.” Noting that states are largely free to implement urban planning policies, the court nevertheless underlined that the needs of minority communities were not taken into consideration by state authorities. “Domestic courts had taken no account of the specific needs of a small community of believers,” the ECHR said, adding that Turkey’s practices were in violation of Article 9 of the convention. Violations of the remaining articles on which the Jehovah Witnesses complained should also be declared admissible, the court said, but found no need to examine their merits because they were already sufficiently covered. Turkey was ordered to pay 1,000 euros to the applicants in non-pecuniary damages in addition to 4,000 euros to cover their costs and expenses.
