Canadians Paul Ruzycki (roo-ZIH'-kee) and Alexandre Paul were among a number of activists arrested in the high Arctic after armed Russian Coast Guard officials boarded their ship where Greenpeace had been protesting oil drilling. The pair were initially charged with piracy, but the charges were reduced to hooliganism, which carried a seven-year prison sentence. Alex Neve (neeve) of Amnesty International said the charges were absurd. (Amnesty International called on Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird to get directly involved in the case.)
