Uzbekistan - Jehovah's Witnesses

They are Jehovah's Witnesses, "which is a sect" Olim Nurmukhamedov, Chief of Samarkand District Anti-Terrorism Police, who led the raid, adamantly defended the raid and fines. "We seized prohibited religious literature from them," he told Forum 18 on 9 September. However, he could not say exactly which of the confiscated books are banned in Uzbekistan and which agency had banned them. "You know they are not Christians but Jehovah's Witnesses, which is a sect," he insisted to Forum 18. Told that the fined Protestants are not Jehovah's Witnesses, and asked why Police and NSS secret Police should disturb the holiday of the community, be it Protestants or Jehovah's Witnesses, he did not answer. He also did not say who ordered the raid. He declined to talk further, asking Forum 18 to send questions in writing. Religious materials ordered destroyed
