Finland NGO calls on Ministry to probe Jehovah’s Witnesses

NGO calls on Ministry to probe closed religious groups; Jehovah’s Witnesses under scrutiny. The UUT – the Support group for the Victims of Religions – has asked the Ministry of Justice to study ways in which to intervene in the activities of closed religious communities.  The group released a report Saturday on the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which UUT claims uses its own internal judicial system with a board that interrogates members and hands down sentences for infractions.
