    [01] Bishop - Chrysostomos

    Nicosia, Oct 12 (CNA) -- A bishop whose business dealings have been the focus of a special investigative committee, said here Monday the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church on the island has not asked him to resign.

    Bishop of Limasol Chrysanthos made the statement after a four-hour meeting with Archbishop Chrysostomos, in view of tomorrow's meeting of the Holy Synod which will examine a report by a special investigating committee regarding the allegations against Chrysanthos.

    The Bishop said no one had asked him to resign, adding that if such issue is raised, it will be during tomorrow's meeting.

    "The Archbishop's view is that the Holy Synod should decide", said Chrysanthos.

    During their meeting, the two exchanged general ideas on tomorrow's meeting.

    The Bishop also criticised journalists for "putting pressure on him with their questions".

    "One can only wonder when you will ever leave the Church alone", Chrysanthos said.

    The report was compiled by a three-member investigating committee on behalf of the Synod and was handed to the Archbishop last week.

    The Bishop is accused of being involved in a 3,7 million dollar alleged fraud case. He has also been accused of having a 1,25 million personal bank account in Iraqi dinars, of being involved in the transfer of 1,7 million dinars, of withholding charity money and other.
