EU court: Romania’s conviction of breakaway Protestant pastors violated religious freedom

February 26, 2019

» Continue to this story on European Court of Human Rights

CWN Editor's Note: The court ruled that “state measures in favor of the leader of a divided religious community or geared to forcing that community to combine under a single leader amounted to an infringement of freedom of religion. In a democratic society the state should not adopt measures to ensure that religious communities are placed or remain under the responsibility of a single authority.”
