MURMANSK, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Officials of the Oktyabrsky prosecutor’s office of the Murmansk region inspected investigation ward No 1 in Murmansk where a number of Greenpeace activists from the ship Arctic Sunrise are held. Eighteen activists, among them five women, are in that investigation wards, Evelina Makarova, press secretary of the regional prosecutor’s office, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“This was a planned check. Maintenance conditions of all detainees, among them Greenpeace members, were verified, the press secretary said.
No infringements of maintenance conditions have been found. There have been no complaints from the detained, either over accommodation, or food or anything else. The Greenpeace press service had earlier confirmed to Itar-Tass that there had been no complaints about the maintenance in the investigation ward from the Arctic Sunrise crew members.
On September 18, the Greenpeace icebreaker Arctic Sunrise flying the Netherland’s flag, approached the floating platform Prirazlomnaya and Greenpeace activists tried to go aboard the platform. Their actions were checked by officers of the Border Department of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) for the Murmansk region, and the ship was towed to the port of Murmansk. The activists are now held in several investigation wards in the Murmansk region. On investigators’ request, all the 30 crew members are to be detained for two months.
