A subcommittee of the Episcopal Synod of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church has said that the consecration of three bishops by Metropolitan Severius Moses Gorgan (of the Antochene Syirac Church) is improper and an infringement on the internal affairs of the Orthodox Church.

A meeting of the subcommittee expressed the full support of the Synod to the disciplinary actions taken by Catholicos of the East Baselius Mar Thoma Didymos I in this regard. The meeting was attended by the two bishops who had consecrated Metropolitan Gorgan in a clandestine manner.
