Pussy Riot case still held in prosecutor's office
MOSCOW, July 12 - RAPSI. The criminal case against Pussy Riot female punk group members charged with disorderly conduct in Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral is still in the prosecutor's office and has not yet been referred to court, the office told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
There has been mention in the media that the prosecutors endorsed their indictment on Wednesday night and forwarded the case to the Khamovnichesky District Court in Moscow.
On February 21, five masked members of the Pussy Riot punk-group performed a protest song called "Holy Sh*t" at the altar of the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow.
The video of their performance was posted on the Internet and incited a major public uproar. Group members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich were arrested. They face up to seven years in prison.
