Kochi:

The Malankara Jacobite Syrian Church has formed an eight-member committee to look into the allegations of a bishop that the latter’s life was in danger.

“The committee will include three bishops, two priests and three people from the laity,” said the Church spokesperson after a meeting of the synod near Kochi.

The Church also asked bishop Kuriakose Mar Clemis to keep away from all duties and responsibilities as a bishop.

Mar Clemis went public on TV channels Sunday, claiming that his life was in danger and a section of the Church was against him and trotting out stories that were largely believed to be baseless.

He also said that he had paid 30 million rupees to Church authorities to become a bishop three years back.

He made this statement after he was asked last week to hand over the responsibilities of the Idukki dioceses where he was serving as the bishop.
