The criminal court of Larnaca-Famagusta has found prima facie case against the former bishop.
In response to this development, Michalis Pikis, the former cleric’s lawyer has requested a period of a day to prepare his defense against the newly obtained information.
According to the Cyprus News Agency, this development has come after 2 more witnesses have testified against Chrysostomos. This includes a police officer who had investigated the case to begin with.
The offence in question that forms the basis of this case is a rape the ex-bishop committed against a woman in 2011, in his own office in Larnaca.
