Two journalists have been been released three days after their arrest while covering an ongoing B.C. pipeline dispute that has drawn the attention of Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
The journalists were arrested while covering the RCMP’s enforcement of an injunction against protesters in northern B.C.
They were released by a B.C. Supreme Court judge Monday on the condition that they appear in court again in February. They must also comply with the same terms protesters are bound by, outlined in an injunction granted to Coastal GasLink by the same judge nearly two years ago.
Mounties said Friday that two people were arrested at the site for refusing to leave what they called in a statement “building-like structures,” and that those people “later identified themselves as independent journalists.”
