Turkish Justice Ministry rejects discussion on return of Sis Catholicosate –
ARMENPRESS – The Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia says the Ministry of Justice of Turkey has rejected to discuss the demand on returning the Catholicosate of Sis.
Back in 2015, the Great House of Cilicia issues a claim to the Constitutional Court of Turkey, demanding the return of the historical Catholicosate of Sis.
Taking into consideration the importance of the lawsuit, the Constitutional Court of Turkey announced it will seek further advice from the Justice Ministry. The Ministry rejected to discuss the claim, and the Constitutional Court told the Catholicosate to respond to the rejection within 15 days.
On May 26 the Great House of Cilicia responded to the Court. The response rejected the Justice Ministry’s ungrounded and contradictory reasons and reiterated the demand to return the Catholicosate of Sis to its rightful owner – the Great House of Cilicia. The Constitutional Court’s verdict is expected.
