On the morning of Thursday, June 9, 2022, the trial against His Eminence the Bishop of Corfu Mr. Nektarios was scheduled in the three-member Court of Appeals of Corfu, following an appeal filed by the Prosecutor of the Court of First Instance Mr. Lampridis in the first instance decision, by which Mr. Nektarios was found innocent the case of the procession of the relics of Agios Spyridon on Palm Sunday 2020.

The court by a majority considered that the trial of the prosecutor’s appeal should be preceded by the trial scheduled for April 3, 2023 in the first instance in the Corfu Court of Appeal of the Mayor of Central Corfu Mr. Meropis Hydraiou, who is accused of her presence in the same litany , together with the first-instance convicts Mr. Dimitris Metallinos, president of the Municipal Council, and Mr. Fotis Skourtis, head of the municipality. Both had filed an appeal, which would be heard together with the prosecutor’s appeal against the Metropolitan of Corfu.

The new trial is set for May 4, 2023, after the trial in the first instance of the case of Mrs. Mayor.

Until the new trial, the acquittal issued at first instance applies to the Metropolitan of Corfu.

Mr. Nektarios would like to publicly thank His Eminence the Metropolitan of Piraeus Mr. Seraphim, who came again as a defense witness, his lawyers Mr. Christofilos and Mr. Kontos, his associates, the priests of the Diocese, the people who came to court to support him, as well as all those who sent him many messages during this time, to express their support and love.

In a statement to the court, Mr. Nektarios stressed that he had the desire to be tried in the second instance, as the prosecutor’s appeal referred to the fact that he defended the Orthodox faith, customs and traditions of the Corfiot people, but also the love of both of him and the people of Corfu in Saint Spyridon, without endangering public health in any way, something that was accepted in the first place by the Greek justice, which acquitted him. His debt will continue to do so, whatever it takes.
