This has reference to Shri. Earnest Edapally, diocesan council member, executive member and the working committee member and also a close accomplice of your good self.

Earnest Edapally is found guilty and he is suspended from the govt. job as panchayath secretary with immediate effect by Govt. order no. 1584/ 2009 of 27-06-09 by order of governor of Kerala. The order copy is enclosed with.

By his action, he has forfeited his right to be a member of diocesan council by the constitution chapter 5 rule 35 read with rule 28 and chapter 2 rule 9 A. Consequently he has forfeited his membership in the executive and the working committee. Kindly treat this letter as an instrument of exhaustion of remedies as described in chapter 8 rule 3 before approaching appropriate court of law. Hence a reply of compliance of the constitution is required within 7 days from the receipt of this letter. Kindly act expediently and urgently since the matter is of purity of the church under chapter 8 rule 77 of the constitution.
