Petr Verzilov, the husband of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, convicted member of the Pussy Riot music group, has reported that another convicted member of the group, Maria Alekhina, is in a pre-trial detention centre in the town of Solikamsk in the Perm district. 

“Last Sunday information was confirmed that Maria had been moved from the penal colony to the Solikamsk pre-trial detention centre, and that in the near future she must be moved to the Temporary Isolation Cell at Berezniki. On Wednesday her petition to defer her punishment because she has a young child is to be considered,” Verzilov told Interfax

He also added that a delegation of the Presidential Council on Human Rights would travel to Perm region for the meeting. 

According to Verzilov, the date on which another petition would be considered – on the lifting of penalties imposed on Alekhina by the penal colony’s administration for getting up later than the set time – is not yet known, zaks.ru reports.
