Kazakhstan: Police Threaten to Seize Baptist Home

Forum 18 reports that police threatened to seize a home inhabited by a family of 14 after the father, Baptist pastor Viktor Kandyba, refused to pay a fine for leading unregistered worship services.

For the time being the Kandyba family remains in their house, though they fear it will be taken at any time.
