Secretary of State Antony Blinken described jailed weed-smuggler WNBA player Brittney Griner’s transfer from a Russian jail to a penal colony as “another injustice.”

“Following a sham trial and the unjust sentencing of Brittney Griner, Moscow is transferring her from a prison in Moscow to a remote penal colony,” Blinken said in a statement Wednesday. “It is another injustice layered on her ongoing unjust and wrongful detention.”
