Greenpeace Briton Frank Hewetson denied bail in Russia – BBC News

Frank Hewetson, 45, a logistics co-ordinator on Greenpeace ship the Arctic Sunrise, is among 30 people being held in the city of Murmansk.

The Arctic Sunrise was seized nearly four weeks ago by Russian security forces after some activists tried to scale an offshore oil platform.

So far all bail applications in the case have been refused.

Piracy in Russia carries a maximum sentence of 15 years.
