Russia to Ignore international Ruling on Greenpeace Ship. – Kremlin, Sergei Ivanov



 -
ST. PETERSBURG, November 23 (RIA Novosti) – Russia would not comply with the ruling of an international court that ordered it to release a Greenpeace ship it seized in September with all crew, a Kremlin official said Saturday.
“We won’t [react]. We have no plans to participate in this process,” Sergei Ivanov, who heads the Kremlin administration, told journalists in St. Petersburg.
The International Tribunal on the Law for the Sea in Hamburg ruled on Friday that Russia must release the Arctic Sunrise icebreaker and all 30 people on board on bond of 3.6 million euro ($4.8 million).
The release is a provisional measure: The maritime court still has to rule on the legality of Russia seizing the vessel.

Russie : presque tous les militants de Greenpeace libérés sous caution.

Presque tous les membres de l'équipage du navire de Greenpeace arraisonné en septembre en Russie étaient sortis de prison sous caution vendredi, mais la justice internationale a réclamé qu'ils puissent quitter le pays.
Le Tribunal international du droit de la mer, basé à Hambourg et saisi par les Pays-Bas, dont l'Arctic Sunrise de Greenpeace bat pavillon, a ordonné de lever la saisie du navire contre le versement d’une caution de 3,6 millions d'euros et de permettre aux membres étrangers de l'équipage de quitter le pays.

Russia says will scrutinize resolution of int’l maritime tribunal.


-
MOSCOW, November 22, 20:40 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will certainly scrutinize Friday’s resolution of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea regarding the Arctic Sunrise case and will formulate a stance on it, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“We’d like to hope the tribunal tackled the case objectively and took account of all the aspects of the /September 18/ incident involving the ship /from aboard which a group of Greenpeace activists tried to get over to a Russian drilling platform - Itar-Tass/, including a failure of the flag state to honor its international legal obligations and encroachment by ship’s crew on the terms of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea in the field of navigation in the exclusive economic zone of a foreign state,” a spokesman for the ministry said.

UN-backed tribunal orders Russia to release Greenpeace protest ship and crew.


22 November 2013 – The United Nations-backed International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea today ordered that Russia release the Greenpeace ship and its crew that it seized in September following a protest over oil drilling off its coast, once the Netherlands posts a bond of 3.6 million euros.
The Arctic Sunrise – an icebreaker operated by the environmental group and which flies the flag of the Netherlands – was boarded by Russian officials on 19 September, brought to the port of Murmansk Oblast and detained.
