OCA Bp. Irineu (Duvlea) not taking deposition lying down

Get ready, ladies and gentlemen, Irineu is not going to "go gentle into that good night." The below is Facebook-translated Romanian to English. A better translation is appreciated.

(Holy Ascension Monastery) - Letter of clarification of the Bishop Irinej of the Synod of and ROEA

Too Cuvioși and too pious parents, 30 June 2017
Love brothers and sisters in Christ the Lord,

I waited a few days for things to sit down and create a little quiet following the unfair decision of the Orthodox Church of America (OCA) and the Romanian Orthodox Bishopric of America (ROEA) on my abusive and unfounded încriminarea.

I also received a great deal of bitterness and dismay the official communique of the OCA and ROEA on the decision taken against me at the end of a so-called investigation that has done and the subject of my suspension so far from my serving. Although the outcome of this research is one so sad and unfair, although the investigation to which I was unfairly subjected was one made in a clearly directed way from behind to lead to this result that we face today,

All of you do not lose your faith in justice!

And I tell you this in these moments of hardship only in the words of the Psalmist that say, " rise up the judge of the earth, rewards the rewarding of the proud. Until the sinners, Lord, until the sinners? Until they say and say injustice (Psalm 93,2-4)

In these times of hard trial and bitterness for my soul, I want to try to encourage you all to continue to keep me in prayers and further in the months to come.

As before Christ, today I want to confess to the entire romanian orthodox bishops in America and all of you, when I say and affirm with all responsibility: the decision of the synod of oca comes to the end of an unfair judgements, with far too many wrongdoings and vices The procedure made by those who have decided so wrong with regard to obvious realities. I understand clearly and the desire of those who for nearly two years have worked against me, priests and lay, some of them being even those who I have reached out and saved them from their situation here and from Romania to live a decent life on American soil. I understand them all, but that doesn't mean I'll ever be able to încuviința hate and nesăbuința with whom they acted against me! The righteous God in justice will judge us all where no intervention can face the right judgment!
Love brothers and sisters, dear priests,

One thing I want to assure you all today, when my soul is so saddened: in the face of God, I will remain and further the bishop of servant and hot imploring for your frățiile, always with your hearts!

I cannot acknowledge the unjust decision that resulted in my abuse and my mocking for nearly two years by interpreting the biased of the orthodox church, through a process, with a pre-sentence. I am a victim of the fact that I have promoted and supported with all my heart and love all that is authentic Romanian spirituality and tradition in America, promoting the unity of all romanians.

I'm innocent!

The So-called "serious canonical crimes" mentioned in all releases and ROEA releases are not supported by any evidence and were never presented in the process or during the investigation, but only have the aim of eliminating mine from the position of Bishop of roea ..

Why did the court court of oca establish that "the details of the problems of my criminalising are of a confidential nature and will not be made public"?

Please and I urge you all, love believers and be duhovnicești, to a lot of prayer in this period in which we need much judgment to prove and believe the truth. God and history will give me justice.
" up Romanian heart; there is salvation!".
With Arhierești blessings,

Bishop of the orthodox church,
Abbot and founder of the romanian orthodox monastery "Ascension" from Clinton,

In the following days there will be a letter of clarification from my lawyer.
