Corker Binning client Kieron Bryan granted bail
Kieron Bryan, the British video-journalist who was on board the Greenpeace ship which attempted to occupy an oil platform during a protest in the Arctic has today been granted bail in Russia. Kieron is part of the so-called ‘Arctic 30’ and was represented by partner Robert Brown who worked alongside Kieron’s Russian lawyers Vladislav Lapinsky and Olga Tseitlina, both Advocats of the St Petersburg Bar and Maria Razumovskaya of Citizen’s Watch, St Petersburg.
Kieron has been granted bail after two months in pre-trial detention, first in Murmansk and then in St Petersburg.
Robert Brown, Kieron’s lawyer, said: “I am delighted that Kieron has been granted bail and it has been a pleasure to work within such a strong and supportive group of lawyers and campaigners”.
