The Cold Turkey Wasn't Enough
A Serbian Orthodox priest was removed as head of a church-backed drug rehabilitation center Wednesday, after a video broadcast on national television showed him beating a patient with a shovel.
Bishop Artemije said he removed Branislav Peranovic from his job leading the Crna Reka center in southern Serbia.
The bishop said the center would be closed if beatings recur, but he stopped short of shutting it down immediately as Serbian Orthodox Church leaders had demanded.
