This news is several months old now, but I thought it may be of interest to some of our Old Believer & Old Ritualist friends here:

Former Moscow Patriarchate believers in Pakistan have switched to the Old Believer Church and have formed a community in Pakistan!

The priest was defrocked by ROCOR for alleged criminal activity, including human trafficking.

Christ is in our midst!!

Can there be any greater sin than human trafficking? Denying the dignity of the human person and treating him like a commercial product?

It's a very serious allegation. It's hard to come across any detailed information, but I hope for Fr Cyril's sake, and his parishioners, and his new jurisdiction, that it's not true.
