MOSCOW, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Member of Pussy Riot punk band Nadezhda Tolokonnikova convicted of hooliganism may serve the remainder of her sentence in the hospital of Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate in Krasnoyarsk Territory.
According to the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate’s representative, there are several different jobs.
Tolokonnikova’s lawyer Irina Khrunova told Itar-Tass that she hoped that her client wouldn’t stay at the penal institution for a long time. “I hope that she will be released under amnesty in the nearest time, and it is early days to say that she will remain in the colony until the end of her term. When she arrived in this colony from Mordovia and underwent a medical examination, they made a magnetic resonance imaging. Doctors say, she is more or less okay, her health condition is stable,” Khrunova said.“She feel okay, plays in a music band of the ward’s medical facility. When she will be released, she will undergo an examination at a regular medical facility,” the lawyer added.
January 13, 2014, the Zheleznodorozhny District Court of Krasnoyars will hear a request of lawyer Khrunova on changing the remainder of Tolokonnikova’s penal term for a milder penalty. In mid-November, the corresponding files have been transferred from the Zubovo-Polyansky Court of Mordovia, where Tolokonnikova was serving her sentence before.
Tolokonnikova is serving a 2-year sentence on charges of hooliganism for taking part in a ‘punk prayer’ in Moscow’s Christ The Savior Cathedral. In early November 2013, she has been transferred from a Mordovian colony to Krasnoyarsk Territory. Her term expires in March 2014.
