Armenian Minister Vows Tough Action If Jehovah’s Witnesses Breach Law

Yerevan, 13 October: The official registration of the Jehovah’s Witnesses religious sect in the Armenian State Registry has become possible only after it submitted all the documents in line with the Armenian constitution and legislation, Armenian Justice Minister David Arutyunyan told journalists today.

“In our opinion, all legal disagreements have been resolved,” he said. The minister added that if the registered sect were to act illegally it would be punished in accordance with the law.

Note from Religion News Blog’s editor:
This may be a significant development, in light of earlier Jehovah’s Witnesses hypocrisy with regard to their teachings on blood transfustions.
