In a statement the Patriarchate denounces deteriorating security and appeals to the government for the protection of persons and their property.


The statement released noted that perpetrators were "falsifying the documents of Christian homes and seizing them and their household goods." Threatening messages also are being sent "through their mobile phones ordering them to leave their jobs," it said.
