UPDATE: Attempt to Ban JW.ORG Fails in Russia

January 22, 2014 UPDATE: Jehovah’s Witnesses won a major court victory today when an appellate court
reversed an earlier ruling by a lower court that banned, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses, throughout Russia. The Regional Court of Tver conducted a new trial, which concluded that the decision of the Tsentralniy District Court on August 7, 2013, was unjustified, since there was no legal reason to ban the site. “Witnesses around the world are rejoicing at this victory,” states J. R. Brown, a spokesman at the Witnesses’ world headquarters. “Thanks to this legal victory, all citizens of Russia will continue to have access to this excellent Bible-education website.” SOURCE:
