Brittney Griner’s arrest has been extended until 19 May, according to Russian state news agency TASS. In February, the American basketball star was detained after authorities found hashish oil in her luggage.
If the two-time Olympic gold medalist is found guilty, she could face up to 10 years in prison. As per TASS, a Moscow court “granted the request of the investigation and extended the period of detention of the US citizen Griner until May 19.” Griner is currently in a detention centre in Khimki City, 14 miles northwest of downtown Moscow.
According to human rights group Public Monitoring Commission, she is sharing a cell with two other prisoners. One of the group’s members, Ekaterina Kalugina, is quoted by TASS as saying Griner has not complained about her conditions, although the beds in her cell are “clearly designed for a shorter person”. “The only objective problem was the height of the basketball player—203 centimetres,” she said.
