Greenpeace ship captain denied bail in Russia hearing
A Russian court has rejected bail requests from the American captain of a Greenpeace ship and two other foreign activists involved in a protest against oil drilling in the Arctic.
Skipper Pete Wilcox, 60, and campaigners David John Haussmann, 49, and Camila Speziale, 21, had appealed against a pre-trial detention order.
They are among 30 people being held in the city of Murmansk on piracy charges.
A bail hearing is due to take place on Tuesday for Briton Frank Hewetson.
Mr Hewetson, 45, who was a logistics co-ordinator on the ship, will appear alongside Swiss activist Marco Weber and Cristian D’Alessandro of Italy, according to a Greenpeace statement on Twitter.
