Britney Griner will remain in custody in Russia for at least another two and a half weeks… the WNBA superstar’s detention has just been extended by a court until July 2.
The decision was made on Tuesday, according to Russian media TASS.
The decision comes on the heels of US State Department officials meeting with representatives from Brittney’s current WNBA team, the Phoenix Mercury, to discuss ways to safely return the professional hoop to America.
Specific details of the meeting remain under wraps — it’s unclear exactly who attended or what was discussed — but officials confirmed to The Associated Press that the forum did take place.
The 31-year-old has been in Russian custody since mid-February … after officials said she had hash oil in her luggage while going through airport security.
Our sincere thanks to
