      A Romanian lawyer is suing his local Orthodox bishop and four priests
      claiming they failed to properly exorcise flatulent demons that were
      forcing him out of his home.

      Madalin Ciculescu, 34, accused the five of fraud after they turned up
      several times to exercise the demons which were responsible for the bad
      smells that were ruining his business.

      He claimed that after the failed exorcism the demons even started
      haunting him at his home at Pitesti in Arges County in central Romania.

      The case alleging 'religious malpractice' is reportedly the first time
      there has been such an allegation made in a Romanian court.

      He told the court: 'If they (the accused) represent the way of God then
      God's ways are crooked. They did not remove the demons that made these
      bad smells as they promised to do, and I still see all sorts of demons
      in the form of animals, usually crows but also other such things, that
      are making my life miserable.

      'When I am at home they switch the TV on and off all the time, they make
      foul smells that give me headaches and basically roam unhindered around
      my house and my business.'

      The man produced his mother to back up his claim saying that even the
      hair-dryer was possessed and a black shadow came out of it when anyone
      tried to use it - and she also said the fridge was infested by the
      flatulent demons that she confirmed left foul smells about the property.

      But the lawyer for the Archdiocese from Arges, Anton Alin, rejected the
      allegation of fraud saying that the exorcism had been properly carried
      out and they believed the allegations of further demons and more bad
      smells were simply a product of the man's imagination.

      The Romanian court agreed with the church and rejected the application
      against Bishop Argatu as well as priests Ionut Cret Ovidiu, Gheorghe
      Nicut, Marius Dumitrescu and Gheorghe Dunitru - and ordered Ciculescu to
      pay legal costs.
