Jehovah’s Witness Faces Hate Charges In Kazakhstan

Preliminary hearings were held in the trial of a Jehovah’s Witness charged with inciting interethnic enmity on March 27 in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.

Teimur Akhmedov, 60, was arrested in January for what the Committee for National Security (KNB) said propagating ideas that “disrupt interreligious and interethnic concord” in the country.
