 Tymoshenko Demands to Be Taken Court Despite Her Health, Lawyer Says

Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko demands to be taken to tomorrow’s hearing in Kyiv, despite the state of her health.

According to Comments this was stated by her lawyer Serhii Vlasenko at a briefing in Kharkiv citing a statement of the former Prime Minister.

"The statement said: 'I demand to take me to court to take part in the questioning of witnesses, despite my serious illness. I demand to inform me of the time of convoy's arrival to deliver me to the Kyiv Court of Appeals where a hearing will take place tomorrow February 19, at 10:00 a.m.," said Vlasenko.

However, the defender believes that Tymoshenko will not be taken from Kharkiv. "Most likely, there will be another act, they will say that they cannot take her because she refused to go r she forgot to sign some paper," he said.

Vlasenko noted that answering his question, how many of these applications were written before the interrogation of the witness Serhii Zaytsev, Tymoshenko said: "About a dozen."

"It is absolutely clear: the last two witnesses prove that the PGO has nothing, there are no living witnesses of those events, but there is a desire to conduct a propaganda campaign called "Let's smear Tymoshenko and prove her involvement," added the defender.
