Conflict in Permet about the church, police takes control of the House of Culture

Conflict in Permet about the church, police takes control of the House of Culture
Permet, August 20, 2013

This morning, private police have entered the premises of the House of Culture in Permet, taking once again control of what Orthodox believers consider as the church of St. Mary.

Private police have intervened in the early hours of the morning after the depart of Orthodox believers, taking once control of the object of conflict which is situated in the town center.

Yesterday, a group of Orthodox believers forcefully entered the House of Culture of Permet by attacking private guards and then held a mass inside the premises.

The clash which started a few days ago came as a result of the ruling of the Constitutional Court to return this building to the Municipality of Permet.

The court ruling states that the church must leave the House of Culture and the bailiff’s office went there a few days ago to execute this ruling and this is where the conflict started. /ibna/
