Bhakti Bhrnga Govinda Swami’s Kazakhstan deportation case closed
By BB Govinda Swami
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am happy to inform you that the Kazakhstan government has closed my deportation case.
The director of our Almaty Society requested the General Prosecutor’s office to investigate the issue. In doing so the Aktobe prosecutor withdrew the ruling on my deportation.
I was then requested by the National Religious Committee to come to Kazakhstan to complete any formalities to assure that my name be removed from the blacklist.
On March 26, 2009, at 3:30 AM, Kairat Tulesov, Deputy Head of the National Religious Committee, accompanied by officers of the KNB and the General Prosecutor’s Office received me in the Almaty airport.
Mr. Tulesov welcomed me, escorted me through immigration, and assured me that the issue of my immigration was a closed case.
With the amendments to the religious law having been rejected, religious persons being released from prison, and my deportation case being resolved, it appears that the Kazakhstan government is beginning to exhibit the will to have relationship through civil dialogue.
My deepest thanks to you all for your prayers and support. I humbly request that you continue to pray that the crisis of our society in Kazakhstan will soon be resolved.
With affectionate regards.
BB Govinda Swami
