Asmara-Eritrea: Patriarch Abune Antonios of Eritrea is falsely expelled from the Church by a group of top bishops. They have blindly accused him of heresy. This move is part of the ongoing authoritarian propaganda programs by the Eritrean government. The Patriarch is already under house arrest since 2007.
Abune Antonios is still the canonical Patriarch of Eritrea and he is recognized by Orthodox and rest of the Christian world.
He was wrongly deposed by the govt as he took a strong stand against govt. interferences in the Church affairs.
Reports state that Abune Antonios will be allowed to remain in Church-owned building.
May God have mercy.
