Fr Lazar Pattakadavu, the erstwhile Parish Priest of Pullichira Parish is facing Prosecution proceedings for violation of the Order of Kollam Munsiff’s Court. The Secretary of Pullichira Edavaka Samrakshana Samithy had preferred a Petition for prosecuting the Priest and evidence was given before the Honourable Munsiff’s Court. When the case was posted for the examination of Fr Lazar Pattakadavu, the Priest had approached the Honourable High Court of Kerala for quashing the proceedings stating that it is not maintainable. A stay was granted initially by the Honourable High Court. During the final hearing, the Honourable High Court has declined to quash the prosecution proceedings and the Counsel for the Priest had to refrain from urging the contention. Now the High Court has directed the trial court to dispose the Prosecution Petition within three months. Adv Krishnamony appeared for the Secretary, Pullichira Edavaka Samrakshana Samithy before the Honourable High Court of Kerala. Adv M.I.Alexander Panicker, Adv Boris Paul & Adv G.Vijayakumar are appearing for the Secretary of Pullichira Edavaka Samrakshana Samithy in the trial Court.
