 Tymoshenko Demands to be Brought to Tomorrow's Hearing

Opposition leader's lawyer told reporters at a briefing that the Yulia Tymoshenko is deliberately kept from defending herself in court.

Censor.NET reports that Vlasenko stated: "Yulia Tymoshenko for the second or maybe a third time wrote a statement demanding to take her to the hearing tomorrow. Again, I repeat - we are hearing a fabricated case in which a person has been charged with murder. And depriving her of ability to defend herself just because they are afraid of her face, her appearance is the greatest crime that can be. Tymoshenko demands to participate in all proceedings, despite the fact that she understands that there will be no justice. Did you see what they did to the rights of the defense? We were given no opportunity to challenge the judge, which is a brutal violation of our rights," Tymoshenko's lawyer said.
