Kazakhstan: Foreigner Deported for Taking Part in Bible Study

Forum 18 reports that police in Kazakhstan fined and deported a foreign member of the state-registered Spring of Water (Baptist) Church, after videotaping him participating in a Bible discussion with other members of the congregation. Kazakhstan introduced restrictions on foreign missionary activity in 2003 and banned both foreigners and citizens from conducting mission work without state approval in 2005. Police claim that the foreigner, an American, had violated the terms of his business visa, which allowed him only to work at the university.
