Moscow Court Rejects Another Pussy Riot Appeal

Moscow City Court has upheld the verdict handed down to members of the feminist punk group Pussy Riot, sentenced to two years in prison for their "punk prayer" in Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral.

      The supervisory appeal filed by attorney Irina Khrunova on behalf of Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova has been dismissed, the statement says.

      Under Russian law, a supervisory appeal – which is the final stage in the appeals process – can be brought against court decisions that have already entered into force. The standard appeal and the cassation appeal are options open to the defendant within 10 days of receiving the court decision.

      A Russian court earlier denied Alyokhina’s request for early release, filed seven months after the sentence was passed. In protest against a court’s decision not to allow her to personally attend a parole hearing, Alyokhina declared a hunger strike.
