Bailiffs in Uzbekistan Illegally Seize Baptists' Private Property
5/9/2014 Uzbekistan(Forum 18)

Two Baptist families in Uzbekistan were fined in October 2012 for religious activity, but refused to pay them. Over a year later - after the legal time period for a penalty to be imposed had expired - two Uzbeki bailiffs went to the homes of these Baptists, confiscating private property in the absence of those who were initially given the fine. When pressed, one of the bailiffs admitted the seizure had been illegal, but dismissed its importance: "Yes, we were late with the confiscation, but so what?" 

  • Pray justice will be brought against the bailiffs 
  • Pray God will guide and bless the families during this difficult time
  • Pray the families will be strengthened in their faith and continue to worship God despite the confiscation 

Thank you for caring for the persecuted.
