Seizure of Property

Sestroretsk District Court legalized the seizure of foreign property

St. Petersburg

On December 7, 2017, after a 4-hour court hearing, the court announced the decision to invalidate the 17-year-old transaction. If this decision remains in force, it may entail the conversion of a large real estate object in the village of Solnechnoye (St. Petersburg) to the state. This decision casts a shadow on the inviolability of property rights in the Russian Federation, where no organization, even on an international scale, can be calm about its transactions, even if they are officially registered by authorized bodies.

Jehovah's Witnesses have dedicated all the confiscated property to Jehovah God, so they believe that it belongs to God and is being taken away from him. As the Bible calls, Jehovah's Witnesses place all their worries on God (1 Peter 5:7).
