KYRGYZSTAN - Authorities grab Protestant church in Bishkek, angering faithful who turn to the courts [AN]


According to the State Property Fund, the 1999 contract to buy the building and surrounding area broke the law. For the congregation, the real reason for the grab is financial, and displeasure with the growing Christian presence. On 18 April, an appeal trial will get underway to decide the building’s fate.
