Failure to maintain appropriate aircraft separation

I was following the ATC (approach) instruction when I was descending flying the MD-11, I was clearly instructed to descend to 9000 ft and turn right 320 which I did. As I reached below 14,000 ft then I was instructed again to descend to 16,000 ft and I replied ‘unable’. Suddenly I was reported by ‘Declan O’ and demoted to level 2.

Guys, I’d like to know more pls. Was the reply inappropriate that led to the report? I must have done something wrong so I need to know and learn.

Thank you.

@Declan_O can send you a message or you can send him a message to inquire about this. I’m sure he’ll happily provide you an explanation.
