Large fines, jailing for Baptists in Uzbekistan comment (0)

August 7, 2014

TASHKENT, Uzbekistan — Igor Kulyada, a Baptist from Uzbekistan’s capital Tashkent, was jailed July 3–6. He was charged for putting up public leaflets with verses from the Bible. 

Some of his property was ordered to be destroyed and a fine also was imposed on him. Asked why she had done this, Judge Nilufar Dadabayeva said, “I need to ask my superiors before I can give any information.” 

In Syrdarya Region, four Baptists have been fined 50 times their minimum monthly salary, four Baptists 20 times their minimum monthly salary and one Baptist has been fined 10 times their minimum monthly salary. The “offense” of all nine was to meet together to worship and share a meal on Palm Sunday.

Protestants in the central city of Kashi have complained of an illegal raid and house search against one of their co-believers and intrusive questioning of relatives about her. State confiscations of the property of Baptists in Samarkand continue to be carried out.
