The Jehovah’s Witnesses have been granted official registration in Monaco.

This legal development comes after two favourable judgments from the Supreme Court of Monaco and a decision from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the Jehovah Witnesses said. The process took less than two years.

“Less than two years after our brothers filed the application with the ECHR, the ECHR communicated the case to the government of Monaco for its response,” the Witnesses said.

On November 16, 2022, the Government issued a document confirming registration of the Association Monégasque pour le Culte des Témoins de Jéhovah (Monaco Association for the Worship of Jehovah’s Witnesses) and that was duly published in the Official Journal of Monaco on November 18, 2022.

“We rejoice that our brothers and sisters in the principality of Monaco can worship without government restrictions. We thank Jehovah for this long-awaited legal recognition,” the body said, citing Philippians 1:7.
