On 27th December 2016, His Grace Panteleimon, Bishop of Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon, met with His Excellency Mr. Pierre Mabiala, Minister of Justice of the Republic of Congo. Accompanied by the Honourable Mr. Nicholas Perris, Consul General of Greece to the Congo, visited the Minister in the capital, Brazzaville, for ecclesiastical matters. He also congratulated him on the honesty that defines the vast majority of the country’s judges in the administration of justice.
