Has the pakistani church left the russians?

I just visited their website and it seems like they have shifted to the Old Caldebarists.

So it would seem... "With the blessing of the Archbishop Jacob of Athens and all Greece and with the decision of the old calendar orthodox church of Greece Rev Father Cyril Amer has been accepted as clergy of our Orthodox Church"

"Only" two priests chose an old calendarist Greek Church ("Church"?), probably very small one, as it's difficult to find more info about it, I've found linkedin profile of the head of this group: http://gr.linkedin.com/pub/archbishop-iakovos/94/a66/714

Last days also the metropolitan of the ROCOR stated a declaration about these two priests: http://www.rocor.org.au/news10/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/notification_methilarion_9_46_14.pdf

So, one Pakistani priest from ROCOR is still in the country - as for the first of these ROCOR Pakistani priests, fr. Adrian, he seems to be in Australia, but serving normally.

Really, that's a pity, all this situation. I'm very curious what has leader these two priests to leave ROCOR and choose a schismatic group.
