Not recognizing any international treaty and largely acting as a tool of Moscow, the retired admiral, Blue Homeland theorist Chihat Yaikzi filed a lawsuit against Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, claiming that he had overstepped the limits of his duty and authority.
Yayiji, the Turkish press reports, filed a lawsuit with the Istanbul General Prosecutor's Office, claiming that the Patriarch and Archbishop of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Istanbul, Bartholomew I, acted beyond his authority.
He even spoke about Bartholomew I on a television program and made the following statements:
"Last November, the Greek Patriarch of Fener went to Bahrain. In November 2009, the Ferenc Ferenc Ferenc, the Greek Orthodox General Secretary of Ferenc Ferenc, went there in November, where an inter-religious summit is being held. Look what it says on the back, it says 'Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and the New Rome'. Isn't he a citizen of Turkey? Why doesn't he answer for that? In one of his interviews he says: "I feel like I am being crucified in Turkey". He is meeting with Biden. Greek state aircraft are available. The Greek ambassador welcomes. Wouldn't the relevant agencies of the state answer to this man and say "what are you doing?" He says, but this man is not asked anything. I am suing here. Isn't there a prosecutor who loves his country and his people?
In the criminal complaint submitted to the prosecutor's office by Candaş Gürol, a lawyer for the Mavi Vatan Maritime and Global Strategies Association, founded by Cihat Yaycı, said that "suspect Dimitris Archontonis, Patriarch and Archbishop of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople, Bartholomew I , accepts himself as an "Ecumenist" worldwide, is treated as the head of state of 300 million Orthodox. Moreover, the suspect, in addition to the term "Ecumenical Patriarch", also uses the title "Archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome".
It is typical of the fury of the Turkish press which also reports that: "The complaint also states that on December 21, 2009, Dimitris Archontoni said "crucifixion" on the American CBS channel's "60 Minutes" program without being asked any questions and the CBS reporter said, after evaluating the Patriarch, "You spoke of crucifixion." Do you personally feel you have been crucified?" It was reported that Archonton answered the question, "Yes, I think so."
The website Odatv4, which espouses the logic of the Blue Homeland theorist, points out that: "The report noted that Dimitris Archontoni challenged the Treaty of Lausanne with his ecumenical claims.
It went on to say that Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias visited Dimitris Archontoni on December 28, 2019 and that his visit was "in Fener, with His Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople." It was reportedly shared with the words "Together with Bartholomew.
It was further stated in the complaint report that Dimitris Archontonis acted consistently as head of state and used the title of "Ecumenical" consistently and illegally.
The report stated that these actions were aimed at disturbing the unity and territorial integrity of the Republic of Turkey.
The petition initiated an investigation against Patriarch and Archbishop of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople Bartholomew I and Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church in America John Labriniadis, who were reported as suspects for the crimes of "Illegal Public Duty" and "Disturbing the Unity and Territorial Integrity of the State", their statements were taken, and a criminal complaint was prepared against them".
