St.PETERSBURG, November 19, /ITAR-TASS/. The Primorsky district court in St.Petersburg has released on bail a Greenpeace activist, Brazilian citizen Ana Paula Alminhana Maciel, who was detained for taking part in an illegal act staged by Greenpeace activists at Prilazlomnaya sea platform, Itar-Tass reported from the courtroom.
The lawyers for the Brazilian Greenpeace activist said they were ready to pay a collateral worth two million rubles. The prosecutor backed the Greenpeace lawyers’ appeal. Ana Paula Alminhana Maciel will be released from custody as soon as the money arrives.
Polish national Tomasz Dziemianczuk was released on the same conditions.
Earlier, the Kalininsky district court in St. Petersburg had released on bail a member of the Greenpeace press service, Andrei Allakhverdov, Russian photographer Denis Sinyakov and Russian citizen Yekaterina Zaspa, who was a doctor on board the Arctic Sunrise.
But, on Monday the St.Petersburg Primorsky district court lengthened remand sanctions against Australian citizen Colin Russel, who is to remain in custody for three more months -until February 24, the court ruled.
Greenpeace International provides the money for the release of its activists kept in custody in Russia for an attempt to go aboard the Russian oil prospecting platform, a source from "Greenpeace Russia" said on Tuesday. The money offered by Greenpeace International is enough to pay tow million rubles in collateral for every member of the Arctic Sunrise crew arrested by the Russian court, the source said.
On September 18 the Arctic Sunrise with a group of Greenpeace activists on board approached the Russian oil prospecting platform Prilazlomnaya; the Greenpeace activists attempted to disembark onto the Russian platform. The Russian border guards cut short the illegal act and towed the Arctic Sunrise to the Murmansk sea port.
