Intervention of a prosecutor after statements of a professor of the monastery of Mount Athos against anti-vaccination monks |

Prosecutors intervened statements by Archimandrite Bartholomew, professor of the Holy Monastery of Esfigmenos on Mount Athos, about anti-vaccine rabies on Mount Athos who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus and also influence with their extreme non-religious rhetoric they are doing it.

The head of the Thessaloniki Prosecutor’s Office ordered a preliminary investigation in which the professor (of the new, legal Esfigmenos fraternity) will be called to testify, naming those to whom he refers, in order to determine whether they are the crime of spreading lies.

Speaking on ERT radio, the archimandrite called for the intervention of Justice, stressing that “when death smells around us, not only on Mount Athos but all over the world, one can not be deaf.” , that a purely medical subject has been turned into a spiritual one, complaining that “consciously some monks lie, using the name of Mount Athos or even of Esfigmenitos…”.

Mount Athos received a severe blow from Covid-19 as there are several dozen monks who have been ill since the beginning of the pandemic and some of them ended up due to complications of the disease.
