Czech Court Wipes Away 45 Year Old Convictions of 4 Jehovah's Witnesses

In the Czech Republic last Friday, a court in Pizen entered an order of judicial rehabilitation wiping away the 1969 convictions of four Jehovah's Witnesses who were fined for visiting people and speaking with them about the Bible.  At that time, the Communist regime in the country combated all churches. According to yesterday's Prague Post, Judge Iveta Zítková said that the rehabilitation gives "a sort of moral satisfaction" to the four who are now in their 60's and retired.
