The United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee never acted upon Senate Resolution 667 calling for the release of Trevor Reed. SR 667 sat in committee for 4 months. We will ask Senator Cornyn to introduce another resolution in the near future.  We want to than all of you who wrote and called your Senators in support of SR 667 and HR 1115.  Thankfully, the House of Representatives acted quickly to pass HR 1115.

Thank you for your support!

Trevor's first level appeal will continue in Moscow City Court.  The initial appeal hearings were stopped due to defense arguments that Trevor was not given translations of the trial court decision and most of the trial transcripts.  There were also many omissions and improper changes to the trial transcripts in Russian language. The appeal judge sent the case back to Golovinsky Court so the defense could review the audio recordings and transcripts. After reviewing the audio recordings and having the omissions and changed testimonies documented and certified by a third party agency, the trial judge denied all changes introduced by the defense. We are now told that the appeal hearings which normally could take 2-4 hearings may be finished on the first full hearing on February 3rd.
