Yulia Tymoshenko hospitalized in Kharkiv Ukrzaliznytsia hospital will be forcefully delivered to the next court session with the help of Berkut special forces. This was stated by her lawyer, deputy MP Serhii Vlasenko, Censor.NET reports.
Vlasenko said that yesterday Yulia Tymoshenko received information from the employees of the Penitentiary Service that they were instructed in spite of everything, in particular the state of her health and strength to forcefully deliver her to the court hearing that is to be held on January 18, 2013 in Kharkiv.
The defender added that the prison keepers were ordered to take to the court in the same manner as before there when she was transferred to Ukrzaliznytsya hospital when physical force was used, and Berkut special police force will be involved in her transfer this time. According to Vlasenko, the confirmation of this information is a yesterday's press conference of the head physician of hospital #5 who started spreading false information that
Serhii Vlasenko said that the statement was immediately refuted by German doctors of Charite clinic which clearly stated that the issue was not even discussed followed by Afanasiev being forced to admit that this is the opinion of the Ukrainian side. "According to the Ukrainian Constitution compulsory treatment is forbidden and Yulia Tymoshenko did not ask to create any commissions regarding her treatment. Tymoshenko's attending physicians are doctors from German clinic Charite," said Vlasenko.
In addition, Serhii Vlasenko said that the information on the forceful delivery of Yulia Tymoshenko to court is confirmed by a statement of the prosecutor in the process, who said that the question of forceful delivery of Tymoshenko to courtroom will be considered. Vlasenko also said that he is surprised by the prosecutor's statements that they do not know the decision of the Supreme Court of Ukraine to close the case of United Energy Systems of Ukraine. At that he showed the text of the Supreme Court's decree of November 11, 2005 under which the SCU at the joint session of the two chambers considered all the charges to Yulia Tymoshenko as well as considered the fact that the case was closed by the Prosecutor General's Office, and in the resolution part clearly noted that the criminal case against Tymoshenko is closed for lack of evidence.
