MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow City Court presidium on January 24 will consider a supervisory appeal against sentence to the members of the Pussy Riot punk band that were convicted of hooliganism in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral, the court's spokespeson Ulyana Solopova told Itar-Tass.
“Trial contents and the supervisory appeal were submitted to the Moscow City Court presidium, and the hearing is scheduled for January 24,” Solopova said.
August 17, 2012, Moscow’s Khamovniky District Court found three Pussy Riot members — Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich — guilty of hooliganism based on religious hatred and feud for the notorious ‘punk prayer’ in Christ The Savior Cathedral. Each of them was sentenced to two years in general regime penal colony.October 10, 2012, Moscow City Court revised the sentence of Yekaterina Samutsevich, suspending the real penal term. For the rest two convicts the penalty remained the same, and they were transferred to correctional facilities: Alyokhina was moved to Perm Territory, and Tolokonnikova — to Mordovia, and later — to Krasnoyarsk Territory.
As earlier told Irina Khrunova, the lawyer of Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina, the convicted girls might come under amnesty. “In theory, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are included in the amnesty, since they have underage children, and Samutsevich has a suspended sentence,” the attorney said, stressing that everything would become clear after the State Duma approves the amnesty draft bill.
