New Delhi, July 4, 2017: The Supreme Court on today dismissed a petition by the Jacobite Syrian Christian Church in a case related to the ownership of the St Peter’s and St Paul’s Church at Kolenchery.

The court ruled the church had to be governed in accordance with the constitution of 1934, rejecting the Jacobite Syrian Church’s request to recognize an agreement from 1913.

A bench of justice Arun Mishra and justice Amitabh Roy said that the church factions were bound by the 1995 order.

The bench said that the constitution formed by the church in 2002 was not valid but said the 1934 constitution could be amended if necessary.
