On May 15, 2012 the French appellate court upheld a six month suspended sentence for Bishop Varnava of Cannes, France, and three months for Priest Seraphim Baranchikov.  This confirms that the court considers Bishop Varnava and his legal husband Seraphim (Baranchikov) to be felons.  They remain active clerics of ROCOR-MP (Moscow Patriarchate).
