MOSCOW, September 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow City Court will consider the legality of a sentenced passed on members of the Pussy Riot punk group convicted on charges of hooliganism in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior on October 1, Darya Lyakh, the spokesperson for the court of the Moscow Khamovniki district, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The board the Moscow city court will consider the cassation appeal against the sentence passed on Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Maria Alyokhina at 11:00 Moscow time on October 1,” she said.
The convicts’ defense lawyers demand lifting the sentence and ending criminal prosecution of their clients.
The Khamovniki district court found Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina and Samutsevich guilty of hooliganism motivated by hostility and religious hatred. Judge Marina Syrova sentenced each of the young women to two years in a general regime penal colony.
