ST. PETERSBURG, November 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Primorsky district court of St. Petersburg has extended for three months the arrest term to Australian citizen Colin Russell, who was detained during a Greenpeace action seeking to board the Russian offshore oil drilling rig Prirazlomnaya, Itar-Tass reported from the courtroom on Monday. Thus, the term in arrest was extended until February 24.The court ruled to support the detectives, who stated in their request that Russell may escape justice or would influence the investigation if the measure of restraint is changed. Meanwhile, the court has found the arguments produced by the lawyers invalid. The lawyers noted that the accusation is groundless, dismissed the assumptions that the defendant may escape justice or would exert influence on the investigation and produced the reservation at the hotel as evidence. Russell would be able to live at the hotel during the investigation. The lawyers also submitted financial documents that prove Greenpeace can pay a bail of up two million roubles (about $61.2 thousand) for him.
On Monday, the St. Petersburg court will try several more requests to extend the terms in arrest for other defendants in the criminal case.
