KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday dismissed the anticipatory pleas of the priests of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, accused of sexually exploiting a married woman by blackmailing her to reveal her confession secrets. Dismissing their bail pleas, the court said the investigating officials can go forward with the arrest procedures. The court rejected the bail pleas of Fr Johnson V Mathew of Kozhencherry, Fr Jaise K George of Delhi archdiocese, Fr Sony Varghese and Fr Job Mathew. There are indications that they will be arrested soon.  

The prosecution opposed the priests bail plea. Bail should not be granted as they should be taken into custody and questioned. Dismissing their bail pleas, the court said that if they are arrested they can apply for bail.  

Meantime, there are indications that in the wake of the dismissal of their bail pleas, the priests are likely to surrender. They may surrender either before the crime branch office in Thiruvalla or at the first class judicial magistrate. Abraham Varghese, another priest involved in the case had not filed a bail plea.
