Pussy Riot members complete case materials study
MOSCOW, July 9 - RAPSI. The members of the Pussy Riot punk group who have been accused of hooliganism in the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow have finished reading their criminal case, their attorney Mark Feigin told the Russian Legal Information Agency on Monday.
He noted that on July 4 the Tagansky District Court scheduled the deadline for reading the case materials for July 9.
"We have read the case and it will soon be sent to the prosecutors office for the approval of the indictment. If approved, the case will be sent to court for consideration on its merits," he said.
The Pussy Riot group of five masked women performed a protest song at the altar in the church. A video of their performance was posted online and provoked a public outcry.
Group members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich were arrested. They face up to seven years in prison.
