Green activist held by Russian security
10:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
Chipping Norton-based cameraman Phil Ball, who was detained by Russian security officers aboard a Greenpeace boat in the Arctic, is currently under arrest in Murmansk.
The 42-year-old is one of 30 Greenpeace activists whose boat, the Arctic Sunrise, was detained after four people tried to board an oil platform to prevent it drilling.
Five people have been questioned by Russia’s Investigative Committee, which accuses them of piracy, but have not yet been charged.
