Australian Arctic activist Colin Russell has been detained until February by a Russian court after a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling. All other members of the Arctic 30 have been granted bail and all but one have been released from the detention centre. However, they still face the serious charge of hooliganism which carries up to seven years in jail.
Before being told he must remain in prison, Colin told the judge: "I haven't done anything wrong. I don't understand the reasons why I've been detained. I've done two months hard time for nothing. I've done nothing wrong." He ended by saying: "I love you all. I love everybody. I am not a criminal." Watch the Video here.
Amsterdam, 15 November 2013 — Russia’s Investigative Committee today announced that it will apply for a three-month extension to the detention of the Arctic 30. They will make the applications in front of a judge at hearings next week.
