NEW PLYMOUTH | Actress Lucy Lawless, best known for her leading role in “Xena: Warrior Princess” risks three years in prison after pleading guilty in a trial that is charged with illegal protest. Maybe after all that’s why her name is “Lawless”.
In February this year, Lucy Lawless, 44, and four other Greenpeace activists stayed for four days, at a height of 53 meters on a tower on the drilling ship NobleDiscoverer docked in Port Taranaki , protesting against oil exploitation in the Arctic. Eight Greenpeace activists have pleaded guilty in this process. The sentence in this process will be given in September.
