Montenegrin Orthodox Church Metropolitan Mihailo and two priests of Monetenrgin ortodox Church (CPC), Jovan Tomovic and Dragan Pavlovic, were acquitted today of the charges brought against them by Diocese of Montenegro and the Littoral (MCP)
Because, as alleged in the indictment, on August 25, 2011 they entered in the Church of the Holy Archangel Michael in Gornji Rogami after they had broken the lock on the church, which is owned by MCP.
CPC announced that the judge of the Basic Court in Podgorica Nenad Vujanovic explained that during the revision process “it has not been proved that the Bishop and priests of CPC forcibly entered the church, nor that they were using electricity or other grinders to brake the lock and enter the church without authorization, and then did so-called ritual, then replaced the lock and left the door locked. It was added that the complaint is based on assumptions of witnesses. ”
During the trial, CPC told the priests that they were in the Church of St. Michael in Gornji Rogame on August 25, 2011, but rejected charges that they broke the lock, arguing that the door was unlocked.
