The Office bearers of Pullichira Edavaka Samrakshana Samithi who were served with INTERDICTS and CENSURES have filed a Civil Suit against the Bishop, Episcopal Vicar and Parish Priest before the Munsiff’s Court, Kollam. The Suit was filed through Advocates M.I.Alexander Panicker and Boris Paul. The Suit was filed seeking the following reliefs:
1) To pass a decree of declaration that the Orders passed by the Vicar in the form of INTERDICTS and CENSURES are illegal, arbitrary and void and are in violation of the civil rights of the Plaintiffs and is unenforceable against Plaintiffs and or their family members.
2) To pass a decree of permanent injunction restraining the Defendants and their Pastors from doing any act to discriminate, obstruct, delay or deny the Sacraments and rites to the Plaintiffs and or their family members in lieu of the Plaintiffs forming the Charitable Society (Pullichira Edavaka Samrakshana Samithy) or any organisation and or criticising the Church authorities including the Defendants, or lodging any Complaints against the Defendants to authorities including Pope through legal means.
3) To allow cost of the Suit from the contesting Defendants.
The Bishop had filed Caveats through Adv George Mathews and therefore the Suit was filed after serving copies of the Suit and other documents to their Counsel. The matter will be heard on 1st March 2010.
We request all help from our well wishers to fight against the unchristian acts being committed by the Bishop of Kollam, Episcopal Vicar and the Parish Priest of Pullichira.
