MURMANSK, October 10 (Itar-Tass) - Alexander Patrikeyev, the human rights ombudsman in the Murmansk region, and Alexander Kudrin, the head of the Federal Service for the Execution of Punishment (UFSIN), for the Murmansk region have visited part of the Greenpeace activists at the Murmansk pre-trial detention center No.1.
Patrikeyev and Kudrin made their round of the prison cells, including those where the Greenpeace activists from the Arctic Sunrise were being kept in custody, to poll the suspects and defendants. Some questions linked to everyday life were solved immediately. The inmates received exhausting answers and explanations on a number of issues.
On September 18, the Arctic Sunrise vessel belonging to the Greenpeace approached the Prirazlomnaya oil platform. The activists tried to climb on its board. The border guards of the Russian Federal Security Service for the Murmansk region thwarted their actions. The vessel was towed to the Murmansk port. A Murmansk district court sentenced all the Greenpeace activists to two months in prison. They are being kept in custody in several pre-trial detention wards of the Murmansk region.
