The church had prevented Dr. Samir Habashi and two Coptic ministers from entering the church based on a decision of Church council.
 
It’s worth mentioning that Abba Daniel was suspended by Pope Shenouda III and returned to his office in the reign of Pope Tawadros, which sparked a crisis and opposition of some Copts in Sydney in 2012.
