Pussy Riot are one thirds free (leaving two still imprisoned though)

One of the greatest abuses of freedom speech in the music world has begun to be revoked as one of the three-piece Pussy Riot is freed after appeal.

Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevich gave evidence in the dock before being freed but the punk collective’s two other members both had their two-year sentences upheld. A small victory for freedom of speech but one that still fails to repair the damage done by such wrongful imprisonment.
