    The Cuban Communist Party has notified Maranatha First Baptist Church in Holguin that it will review the order issued by local government officials to confiscate the church’s property and issue its decision in October.

    Maranatha was first informed by local government officials in May that the property was being confiscated by the government under new powers granted to the authorities by legislation that came into effect in January 2015. After an outpouring of public international support for the church, a review was granted.
