MURMANSK, October 21. (ITAR-TASS). — Murmansk Regional Court on Monday upheld the decision of the court of first instance to arrest for two months Greenpeace activist from Switzerland Paolo Marco Weber. This told a spokeswoman for Greenpeace Russia to Itar-Tass, adding that he would remain in jail until November 24.
The hearing of Weber’s appeal has been shifted from October 15. According to Greenpeace spokesperson, this was made because not all documents had been translated from Russian. “Furthermore, some were translated into English, although the native language of Marco Weber is German,” she said, noting that even the prosecutive act was drawn in Russian.
At the hearing Weber claimed that it was inconvenient for him that the hearing was conducted in English, and required a German-speaking interpreter, as well as to translate all the documents into German.
The court also rejected an appeal of the arrested citizen of Finland, Sini Annukka Saarela. Hearings on complaints of Pole Tomasz Dziemianczuk and Brit Jen Christopher Rogers continue.
