False News about allotment of dioceses

1 Oct 2008: H.B. Paulose Mar Milithios Metropolitan in a press release, stated that the news regarding the allotment of dioceses to the newly elected bishop candidates is not true. His Beatitude was responding to the news published by certain  internet news agency that the H.Episcopal Synod alloted dioceses to the newly elected bishop candidates. Eventhough it was decided to have the consecration on 19 Feb 2009, no discussion about the allotment was done in any of the forums so far. His Beatitude reminded that the faithful should ignore such news which will create confusion among the people and thereby weaken the H.Church. He added that it has been decided to  take strict action against those who publish false news and thereby create confusion among people.
