Indonesia: Sunday School Teachers Freed From Jail

Open Doors UK reports that three women have been released from prison in Indonesia, after serving two years of a three year prison sentence for conducting a children’s program in their homes, which included Bible study and Christian songs and games. In 2005, a local court sentenced Dr. Rebekka Zakaria, Eti Pangesti, and Ratna Bangun after it was discovered that thirty of the forty children attending their program were not Christian. Despite the fact that the Muslim children taking part in the program did so with the consent of their parents, Zakaria, Pangesti and Bangun were found to have violated Indonesia’s Children Protection Law.
