His Holiness Aram I, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, closely follows the trial on the return of the Sis Patriarchate launched at the Constitutional Court of Turkey.
Within the framework of the visit to the United States, His Holiness had a meeting with Taner Akcam, member of the commission of the trial, who positively assessed the work done so far and stressed the importance of maintaining efforts.
It has been decided to hold a press conference in Istanbul ahead of the general parliamentary elections in Turkey scheduled for June 7.
The Catholicos keeps in touch with other members of the commission and follows the reactions of Turkey and international media.
On Tuesday 28 April 2015, the attorney of the Catholicosate of Cilicia in Turkey submitted a brief to the Constitutional Court in Turkey, requesting the return of its Centre in Sis (Kozan).
