Amnesty International Disappointed by Appeals Court’s Decision to Uphold Two of the Women’s Pussy Riot Prison Sentence

(Washington, D.C.) – Suzanne Nossel, Amnesty International USA executive director, issued the following statement in response to a Moscow’s Court’s decision to free Ekaterina Samutsevich and uphold Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova two year sentence. All of the three women were given a two-year sentence for "hooliganism on the grounds of religious hatred” for a protest song they performed in a Moscow cathedral in February 2012 and were designated Amnesty International Prisoners of Conscience.
