SYRDARYA, Uzbekistan — Court bailiffs in Uzbekistan’s central Samarkand Region admit they confiscated a car, a vacuum cleaner and other household items from two families beyond the legally defined deadline.
The seizures came after the two Baptists refused to pay fines imposed in 2012 to punish them for exercising the right to freedom of religion or belief. Meanwhile 15 police and other officials raided a church’s Sunday meeting for worship in a home in Syrdarya.
