Russia: A Danish Jehova’s Witness bags 6 years in prison over ‘extremism’.

Published

on

A Russian court on Wednesday sentenced a Jehovah’s Witness to six years in prison for “extremism”, in the first conviction of its kind since a 2017 law that outlawed the religious group.

Danish citizen Dennis Christensen was in court in the southern Russian city of Oryol for the sentencing, spokesman for the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia Yaroslav Sivulskiy told said.



“We deeply regret the conviction of Dennis Christensen an innocent man who did not commit any real crime,” Sivulskiy said in a statement.

“It is sad that reading the Bible, preaching, and living a moral way of life is again a criminal offence in Russia.”

The Jehovah’s Witnesses, a US-based Christian evangelical movement, will appeal the verdict within 10 days, according to a statement from the organisation’s head office.

A photographer outside the courtroom saw Christensen, 46, being led past a mass of supporters by police officers following the verdict.

Rights groups have condemned the trial, with Amnesty International saying it was “emblematic of the grave human rights violations” taking place in Russia.

Armed FSB officers detained Christensen in Oryol in May 2017, shortly after Moscow banned Jehovah’s Witnesses as an extremist organisation.

“It is clear that he has to leave Manchester United,”

“It would be a good thing for both parties. It is now important that Romelu finds the right club.”

Martinez made this submission during an interview with newsmen as the 26-year-old endured a difficult second season at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move away.

The likes of Inter Milan have been reportedly showing an interest in Belgium’s all-time record goalscorer, who has netted 42 in 96 games since joining United from Everton in 2017.

However, he failed to find the back of the net in his last eight appearances of the season and was not an automatic starter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Now Lukaku’s international boss, who was also his manager at Goodison Park, feels everyone may benefit if the player secures a summer transfer.
