RUSSIA: “THEY’LL PUNISH YOU, WHETHER OR NOT YOU COMMITTED A CRIME”

“Extremist” books in locked box leads to large fine

In the city of Samara on the Volga, the presence of single copies of prohibited texts was sufficient evidence for prosecutors to bring “mass distribution” charges against the city’s Jehovah’s Witnesses. The community was fined 50,000 Roubles (nine times the minimum monthly wage – about 8,350 Norwegian Kroner, 1,000 Euros, or 1,400 US Dollars) by Judge Natalya Valeryeva at Soviet District Court on 6 March.
