NEW YORK- His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America has directed the  Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America to cover the expenses of the late, 29-year-old, George Zapantis. Mr. Zapantis died last week of cardiac arrest induced by excessive force used by NYPD officers, who tasered him twice, responding to the home of Mr. Zapantis due to reports of a sword being wielded.

In addition to covering the expenses, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros will also, personally, preside over funeral proceeds which will take place on Monday morning at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Whitestone, New York.
