The statements ask that the court remove these cases on legal grounds, which have now been going on for three years and are rapidly leading to the confiscation of cathedrals and temples of the ROAC in use for over a decade.

According to the document, appeals are being filed in the decisions against the state, which has ordered the closure and confiscation of the temples.
