Transdniester: 10-Year Waiting Period Proposed For Religious Registration

Forum 18 reports that the Parliament of the as-yet-unrecognized state of Transdniester, located near Moldova, has recently proposed a new religion law, which if passed, would impose serious restrictions on the religious freedom of Transdniester’s inhabitants. The draft of the law states that new religious communities would have to endure a 10-year waiting period to obtain legal status, during which time they would be unable to produce religious literature, set up educational institutes, or invite foreign religious workers.
