Public Communique of the Metropolitanate of Australia-New Zealand

Public Communique on the completion of the judicial process in Australia

The issue of the completion of legal proceedings in Australia is a constant concern of our Metropolitanate, one which we have at present started to actively implement. At the convocations of the Executive Board and Assembly of the Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand (03 to 05 September 2015) in Melbourne, the official position of the Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand of the Serbian Orthodox Church was formulated as such that the Metropolitanate would not initiate new proceedings or continue with procedures that were stayed until the handing down of the judgment of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and adoption of a Scheme regarding the use of the New Kalenich Monastery; except in the case of an appeal, in order to defend our court victory in the process of restoring the New Kalenich Monastery to the Serbian Orthodox Church.
