Moscow - Five days after the Khamovnichesky District Court handed down a guilty verdict against Russian punk band Pussy Riot, the Court’s website was hacked, RAPSI reports.

The hackers struck on Tuesday morning, and used the opportunity to post a sexually suggestive music video of the flamboyantly gay Bulgarian singer Aziz and put up slogans on the site saying “Freedom for Pussy Riot!” according to Kommersant. The hackers also intercepted the Court’s e-mail address, at least according to messages posted on Twitter.

Anonymous, the worldwide hacktivist group, has taken responsibility for the attack on the Court’s site.

A screenshot of the Court's hacked website circulated on Twitter:
