Woman convicted in Russia for text messages pardoned

Woman convicted in Russia for text messages pardoned

Russian President Vladimir Putin has pardoned a woman convicted of treason last year for sending text messages about military movements near Georgia’s breakaway republic.

The Kremlin published Putin’s decree on Tuesday to pardon 46-year old Oksana Sevastidi, who was sentenced to seven years in prison in March 2016. 

Prosecutors said that the shopkeeper from the Black Sea resort of Sochi sent two text messages in 2008 about Russian military movements near the breakaway republic of Abkhazia, the AP reported.
