Kazakhstan: Ownership of Hare Krishna Farm Transferred to Private Individual

Forum 18 reports that the Kazakh government has finally succeeded in confiscating a farm owned by Kazakhstan’s only Hare Krishna community, and has handed the rights to the land over to the person who sold the rights to the property in 1999. The Hare Krishna community believes that this move will make it more difficult for them to challenge the confiscation of their land, as any court will be able to claim that the expulsion of the community was due to a private issue between the owner of the land and the community, rather than government intervention.
