Krygyzstan Secret Police
behind "needed" new
religious freedom punishments
Human Rights organization Forum 18 is reporting that Krygyzstan's State Committee for Religious Affairs, with the help of the secret police, have proposed new legislation that would increase punishments for exercising religious freedom.
This comes on top of already tough laws regarding the exercise of religious freedom in this central Asian nation. Churches, missionaries and others from many different denominations and religions have been forced to "re-register" with the Kyrgyzstan government, often being rejected, or left in legal limbo while decisions are not made on these applications.
Please pray that these new laws won't be enacted and that religious freedom in Kyrgyzstan will be granted to its citizens.
Thanks again for your continued prayers for Advocates International and for all of the advocates who are representing persecuted Christians around the globe.
May the Lord bless and keep you in His perfect. . .
