    Greenpeace sues Russia in Europe rights court

    The environmental advocacy organization Greenpeace International on Monday filed a lawsuit against Russia in the European Court of Human Rights on behalf of the Arctic 30 . a group of Greenpeace activists who spent two months in a Russian jail following a peaceful protest against drilling in the Arctic.

    Greenpeace is requesting "just compensation" for the Arctic 30 as well as a declaration by the court that Russia's apprehension and detention of the activists in international waters was unlawful. Greenpeace asserts that the court has jurisdiction to rule on the case because Russia has ratified the European Convention on Human Rights.

    In December Greenpeace announced that Russian authorities dropped criminal charges against the Arctic 30. In November a Russian court granted bail to Colin Russell, who was one of the activists detained. That same month, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) ordered the release of the Arctic Sunrise as well as all those arrested in board the ship, upon payment of a 3.6 million euro bond by the Netherlands. In October the activists were charged with piracy following their staged protest. Russia's treatment of the activists has drawn criticism from a number of rights groups including Human Rights Watch.
