TURKMENISTAN: Pentecostal Church Confiscation Appeal Tomorrow

by Felix Corley, Keston News Service, 30 January 2001

The city court of the Turkmen capital Ashgabad is to consider Pentecostal pastor Viktor Makrousov's appeal against the confiscation of the city's Pentecostal church tomorrow (31 January). The hearing is due to begin at 10 am. Pastor Makrousov told Keston News Service from Ashgabad today (30 January) that he was informed of the new date and time only at 4 pm today.

The hearing was to have taken place on 24 January, but was postponed at the last minute because the judge was `not ready' (see KNS 24 January 2001). (END)
