Website of Court that sentenced Pussy Riot HACKED!

Website of court that sentenced Pussy Riot hackedThe website of the Mascow court that sentenced three members of Pussy Riot to 2 years in prison has been hacked. Anonymous? Sweet Revenge?

The Russian offshoot of the loose-knit movement known as Anonymous tweeted that it had taken down the website of the Khamovniki district court.

According to search engines’ cached pages, the hackers posted Pussy Riot’s latest song ridiculing President Vladimir Putin on the website, along with calls to release the band members. One headline read: “Putin’s thieving gang is robbing our country! Wake up, comrades!”

The website — hamovnichesky.msk.sudrf.ru — was not available later Tuesday.

Court spokeswoman Darya Lyakh said the Supreme Court would demand the hackers face criminal charges.

The three female band members were punished for a provocative stunt in February at Moscow’s main cathedral in which they asked the Virgin Mary to deliver Russia from Putin, who was elected to a third term two weeks later.

The punishment of Pussy Riot has highlighted the crackdown on the opposition since Putin returned to the presidency in May.
