MOSCOW, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Maria Alyokhina, a convicted for hooliganism member of the Pussy Riot girls’ punk band, has been amnestied.
December 18, lawyer Irina Khrunova said that Members of the Pussy Riot punk group Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina might be released by New Year's Eve.
Another woman from the Pussy Riot band, Yekaterina Samutsevich who was given a suspended sentence, will be amnestied as well, the lawyer said. A resolution on her amnesty will be announced by an inspector of an inspectorate for the implementation of sentences. The only difference the amnesty will make for Yekaterina Samutsevich is that she will no longer have to visit the inspectorate to report her presence, Khrunova said.
