Pussy Riot Appeal Delayed until October 10

On Monday a Moscow Khamovnichesky court postponed the appeal of the three convicted Pussy Riot band members, after one of them, Ekaterina Samutsevich, refused her lawyers' service.

      Ekaterina Samutsevich declared that she wanted to stop working with her lawyers because of divergence of their opinions. 

      Samutsevich's lawyers said they were unaware of any complaints against their work. Samutsevich claimed she has hired a new lawyer, but has not yet signed a contract with him. Her band mates supported her position. The judge postponed the hearing until October 10

      The three women – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Ekaterina Samutsevich – were sentenced to two years in prison on charges of hooliganism in Moscow’s largest cathedral and inciting religious hatred.
