MURMANSK, September 26. (ITAR-TASS). - The court in Murmansk arrested three more Greenpeace activists that were trying to board Russia’s Prirazlomnaya oil platform on Arctic Sunrise ship. Paul Ruzycki from Canada, David Haussmann from New Zealand and Francesco Pisanu from France were taken into custody for two months.
Earlier, a similar measure of restraint the Leninsky Court of Murmansk has chosen for the Pole Tom Demjanczuk and Russians Denis Sinyakov and Roman Dolgov.
The trial against other detainees continues. The court intends to pass verdicts against them on Thursday. This morning, all 30 detained crewmembers of Arctic Sunrise from 19 countries, including four Russians, were delivered to the court.
The Investigative Committee of Russia said today that it does not rule out that the arrested for the attack on the platform may be released from custody prior to the expiration of the two-month deadline set by the court. As Investigative Committee’s spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass, when the role and culpability of each of the attackers and the degree of social danger of the offense are established, “it is possible that even before the expiry of their arrest the investigation takes the decision to change the measure of restraint to a softer one, not related to deprivation of freedom”.
Legal action follows events on September 18 when Arctic Sunrise maneuvered around the oil platform as Greenpeace activists sought to board the structure. Border Service guards prevented their bid and the ship was towed to the port of Murmansk. Detectives opened a criminal case alleging piracy but prosecution officials say the charge may be changed during the investigation.
