MOSCOW, August 1. /Itar-Tass /. Member of punk group Pussy Riot Maria Alyokhina has been transferred to serve the sentence in another region of Russia. This was confirmed by head of Main Directorate of Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/ in Perm Territory Stanislav Volegov.
“She has been convoyed to another region to further serve the sentence,” the FSIN representative confirmed noting that it has been done under FSIN’s order.
He refused to comment on the reasons for transfer. Nevertheless, answering a question on whether the version that it was done because Maria Alyokhina had been treated badly in the camp is true, he noted that “these are speculations made by people who has no idea about our service”.
August 17, 2012, Moscow’s Khamovnichesky district court found three members of Pussy Riot – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich – guilty in vandalism based on religious hatred and antagonism for the notorious ‘punk prayer’. Each of them was convicted to two years in general regime penal colony. October 10, Moscow City Court replaced prison term of Samutsevich for probation sentence. Sentence of other group members remained unchanged and they were convoyed to correctional facilities: Alekhina – to Perm Territory and Tolokonnikova – to Mordovia.
Earlier, Perm Territorial Court dismissed Alekhina’s complaint on parole refusal.
