Russia denies bail for Greenpeace U.S. captain, foreign activist

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia denied bail on Monday to the American captain of a Greenpeace ship and another activist who are among 30 environmentalists arrested on charges of piracy over a protest at an Arctic drilling platform.

Captain Peter Willcox and Greenpeace activist Camila Speziale, 21, who has Italian and Argentinian citizenship, had appealed against an order that they be held in pre-trial detention through late November.

A court in the northern port city of Murmansk has already denied bail to two Britons and four Russians held for the September 18 protest in which activists tried to scale the Prirazlomnaya oil rig and security forces later boarded the Greenpeace ship.

The piracy charges, punishable by up to 15 years' jail, appear aimed at sending a message that Moscow will not tolerate attempts to disrupt its development of the resource-rich Arctic.
Enviro protestors have been getting a "free pass" for all their public atrocities for so long that they believe they have a Constitutional right to do whatever pleases them.

Someone forgot to tell them ........ "Don't mess with Putin".
