ELEVEN Nobel Peace Prize winners have called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to ensure that “excessive charges of piracy” laid against 30 Greenpeace activists are dropped, Greenpeace said today.

“We are writing to ask you to do all you can to ensure that the excessive charges of piracy against the 28 Greenpeace activists, freelance photographer and freelance videographer are dropped, and that any charges brought are consistent with international and Russian law,” they said in a letter.

“We are confident that you share our desire to respect the right to nonviolent protest,” they said in the letter released by Greenpeace.
