Yulia Tymoshenko insists on her participation in trial after recovery. Court wants a spectacle (video)

pr_a0206.jpgLawyer Serhiy Vlasenko says the court’s decision to postpone yet again the trial in the United Energy Systems of Ukraine case is unlawful.

"The court postponed the trial in order to ask Yulia Tymoshenko if she wants to participate in a video conference. The court already has five refusals and needs a sixth. This is a political move with only one intention - to remove a political rival from political life," said Serhiy Vlasenko.

Serhiy Vlasenko stressed that Yulia Tymoshenko insists on participating in the trial after her recovery. The lawyer also pointed out that according to criminal procedure law, in case of illness of the accused, the proceedings should be suspended until his or her recovery.

Today, the Kyivsky District Court of Kharkiv once again postponed the trial in the fabricated case against Yulia Tymoshenko. The next hearing will take place on September 11.
