The trial of the American Christian Protestant Ryan Keating, who was targeted for his activity by the illegal Turkish Cypriot "police" and the "customs" of the separatist regime, continues in the "courts" of the pseudo-state..
According to the website "Persecution.org" (13/06/20222) of the International Christian Concern, Ryan Keating, a former resident of Turkey, is facing charges of raiding the "authorities" of the pseudo-state in January 2021. The occupying police "authorities" they searched his home in occupied Trikomo and his business, Exile Café, in Famagusta and confiscated Christian publications. Keating faces charges of illegally importing Christian literature and illegally producing wine. Keating's business was also turned into a meeting place for the Church /
The last court hearings were rescheduled for May 16th and 17th. Both charges were moved to separate "courts".
Keating has paid a fine for producing wine without a license. The raid was initially carried out under the pretext of producing wine without a valid license, although the "authorities" delayed the renewal of the license. As the investigation and interrogation continued, Keating realized that the motive for his persecution was religious and specifically against his Christian faith and activity.
After being targeted in Turkey for his Christian faith, Kitting moved to the occupied territories to continue his ministry to the Turkish people. Turkey, which has been illegally occupying the northern part of the island since 1974, has long been subject to restrictions and persecution against its historically Christian population.
