      Appeals court of Thrace pronounced sentence on Abbot
      Ephraim
      Athens, March 1, 2012 On March 1, the
      appeals court of Thrace reviewed the case of Vatopedi Abbot Ephraim, Monk
      Arsenios, and judicial representative of the trial court, Maria Psalti, and
      sentenced them to six months in prison with a three-year stay of execution,
      reports Sedmitza.ru, citing the Amen news agency.
      All the above-named persons were found guilty of withholding information to
      the public about the court decision concerning the exchange of monastery
      property on the island of Vistonida. Maria Psalti was found guilty of violating
      her judicial obligation, and Abbot Ephraim and monk Arseny were found guilty of
      “inciting” this action.
       
      At the same time, the judge acquitted Abbot Ephraim and Monk Arsenios of the
      accusation of violating court secrecy. In the former hearing, the five-member
      court of Thrace sentenced the defendants to ten months in prison with a
      three-year stay of execution.
