Ecumenical Patriarch, Vatican condemn Libya death verdict

Sofia (ENI). Istanbul-based Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomeos I
has, along with the Vatican, called for the rescinding of the
death sentence a Libyan court meted out on a group of foreign
medical workers, ruled by the court to have deliberately infected
several hundred Libyan children with HIV. Bartholomeos, widely
seen as the spiritual leader of the world’s mainstream Orthodox
Christians, said in a statement made during a visit to Turkey by
Bulgarian Foreign Minister Solomon Passi, that he hoped the
sentences would not be carried out.
