Russia: Pussy Riot's Alyokhina appealing to Supreme Court | Media coverage: Articles about Freemuse | Scoop.it

The defense of a Pussy Riot member Maria Alyokhina, who was convicted last year of hooliganism for singing a song against President Vladimir Putin, will file a supervisory appeal against her sentence with the Supreme Court, her lawyer said Wednesday. The appeal from the feminist punk rocker follows a similar application with the same court by another band member, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, which was supported by Russia's Human Rights Commissioner Vladimir Lukin.

Tunisia: Fugitive rapper to appeal conviction

Tunisia: Fugitive rapper to appeal conviction | Media coverage: Articles about Freemuse | Scoop.it

Tunis — Tunisian rapper Weld El 15, on the run since receiving a 21-month jail sentence in absentia in August, will appeal the ruling in court next month, his lawyer said. The new trial will take place at the court in Hammamet on December 5," the lawyer Ghazi Mrabet told AFP, adding that his client would be present.

The rapper, whose real name is Ala Yaacoubi, and another musician Klay BBJ, were both given 21-month jail terms in absentia for performing songs deemed insulting to the police at a concert in the eastern town of Hammamet.

The original trial took place without either of the young men being summoned to court or even informed of the proceedings.

A Tunisian court on 25 November handed suspended four-month prison sentences to another Tunisian rapper and a journalist for their alleged role in clashes with police which erupted outside court in June following Weld El 15's initial conviction.
