Russia’s Ministry of Justice on Friday failed to provide convincing evidence to support the government’s demand to declare Jehovah’s Witnesses extremists and outlaw their activities in the country.

It was the third day of the hearing before the Russian Supreme Court. “The judge directed multiple questions toward the Ministry of Justice, asking them to produce evidence regarding their accusations that Jehovah’s Witnesses are extremists and distribute extremist literature. The Ministry of Justice was unable to do so,” says a report on jw.org, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The judge fired the questions after “the Court heard the testimony of four of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who presented key arguments against the Ministry of Justice’s claim to liquidate the Administrative Center of Jehovah’s Witnesses and ban their activities,” according to the report.

It says that Vasiliy Kalin, a member of the presiding committee for the Administrative Center of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia, stated while addressing the Court: “I want to remind the Ministry of Justice that your request to ban Jehovah’s Witnesses would hurt the very people who wish you a peaceful, happy life.”

The report says that the Court has declared a recess until Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.
