Canon 1062

1. The synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church, with due

regard for the competence of the Apostolic See, constitutes the

highest tribunal within the territorial boundaries of the patriarchal Church. 2. The synod of bishops of the patriarchal

Church shall elect by secret ballot for a five-year term, and

from among its members, a general moderator for the administration of justice, as well as two bishops who with him shall constitute a tribunal; if, however, one of the three bishops is

party in the case, or is unable to be present, the patriarch with

the consent of the permanent synod is to substitute another

bishop; likewise, in the case where an objection has been raised,

the patriarch is to act in like manner with the consent of the

permanent synod. 3. This tribunal is to judge the contentious

cases either of eparchies or of bishops, even titular bishops.

4. Appeal in these cases is to be made to the synod of bishops

of patriarchal Church without any further appeal, with due regard

for can. 1059. 5. The general moderator for the administration

of justice has the right of vigilance over all tribunals within

the territorial boundaries of the patriarchal Church, as well as

the right of deciding when objections are raised against a judge

of an ordinary tribunal of the patriarchal Church.
