Greenpeace activist: Russian court 'corrupt'

27 September 2013 Last updated at 10:43 BST

A court in the Russian Arctic port of Murmansk has remanded 22 activists from a Greenpeace ship in custody for two months for allegedly trying to seize an oil platform.

Another eight people from the Arctic Sunrise were detained for three days pending a new hearing.

The activists - who hail from a total of 18 countries - are being held pending a "piracy" inquiry, but Greenpeace says the activists were staging a legal, peaceful protest.

Among those detained was Iain Rogers from Devon. He said the activists had been made to comply with the Russian authorities against their will and that the justice system was "corrupt".
