Georgia’s South Ossetia labels Jehovah’s Witnesses as an extremist organization
Democracy and Freedom Watch reports that the court has also banned the religious group from partaking in any activities.
This ruling is based on the General Prosecutor of South Ossetia, Uruzmag Djagaev’s claim that “extremist ideas and extremist literature” are distributed and promoted at the group’s meetings.
The claim was as a result of reports to the General Prosecutor’s Office that led to searches and seizures of religious literature from Jehovah’s Witnesses. An official claim was filed in July.
