SUPPRESSION a retired major said he had been asked by leronymos to suppress this report for fear of discredit- ing the church. When the pri- mate failed to take action on the financial situation Dinopoulos decided to notify the government. The move came as lerony- mos's position as head of the church had become doubtful af- ter an election that ended his control of the 10-bishop svnod with unfriendly bishops pressing him to resign. This was a major blow for the 67-year-old primate who had exercised full control in the church through a synod consist- ing mainly of bishops loyal to him.
