"The religious group Jehovah's Witness said Monday one of their local leaders in Russia was being persecuted under a vague anti-extremism law. Aexander Kalistratov is on trial in the Siberian town of Gorno-Altaisk for alleged "incitement of religious enmity and hatred," the group's representative Robert Warren said. If convicted, Kalistratov faces up to two years in jail. The trial is part of a "larger problem" that Jehovah's Witnesses have been facing in Russia, Warren told The Associated Press. He called the trial a "misapplication" of Russia' 2002 anti-extremism law."
