Russian Supreme Court Orders Review of Pussy Riot Sentence

The Russian Supreme Court has ordered a review of the lower court ruling against two members of the punk band Pussy Riot, who were jailed for "hooliganism" more than a year ago. The court found that the lower court did not fully consider the defendants' personal circumstances when it convicted them. A third member of the band gained her release some time ago. More here from Aljazeera, The Journalist.

Here's a review of the Pussy Riot case from the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).
