Land deal: Believers urge Pope to suspend Cardinal for impartial probe

Covai Post Network

A group of believers have urged the Pope to order a probe into the land deal under Angamal-Kochi Archdiocese. The letter, in the name of Mother Teresa Global Foundation Chairman V.J. Hyacinth, has sought the suspension of Cardinal Mar George Allencherry.

The move is seen as a big humiliation for the Cardinal who is member of the Sacred College that elects the Pope.

In the letter, Hyacinth said there was tax evasion and black money transaction in the land deal. He also said that the transaction was done in violating the rules and laws of the land (India). “A probe commission excluding Cardinal Mar George Allencherry should investigate the matter,” he said.

“As per the Church rules, Cardinal is the next higher authority after the Pope, and no priest can question his power according to the Canon law,” Hyacinth added.

The allegation of illegal land transaction is against Catholic Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church Cardinal Mar George Allencherry. A group of priests had accused that the church suffered huge loss to the land deal that was initiated to clear bank loans.

Though the Archdiocese had appointed a probe panel the have to submit the report to Allencherry. Hyacinth alleged that all the six members of the panel were loyal to the Cardinal that will affect the impartial investigation.
