Father Paul Ionescu

Father Paul Ionescu is a priest in the Holy Orthodox Archdiocese of Vasiloupolis. In a 2002 news article about Metropolitan Pangratios Vrionis, Father Paul is quoted as saying that the bishop was the victim of a “frame-up” in his 1970 conviction, and that he only pled guilty to prevent damage to his church. Ionescu also reportedly said that Metropolitan Pangratios had been at Ss. Fanourios and Gerasimos Cathedral for thirty years and had never been accused of wrongdoing.
