The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia has become aware of an ‘article’ that was published in Greek and English on the 16 January 2019 edition of The Greek herald, by which spurious and malicious allegations concerning His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos are repeated some twenty years after they were adjudicated upon in his Eminence’s favour.
These allegations were found by the Court of Appeal in Athens (decision no. 6152/1998) to be false, therefore, defamatory of the Archbishop, with the defendants ordered to publish a complete retraction, to pay a substantial monetary penalty and to pay the costs of the proceedings.
As the ‘article’ in question is no more than a regurgitation of the same allegations, their republication some twenty years later is undoubtedly contemptuous of the Greek Court which found in the Archbishop’s favour.
The Archdiocese condemns the ‘reporting’ by The Greek Herald.
No further comment will be made regarding this matter.
