Yulia Tymoshenko: political witch-hunt against members of the opposition continues

pr_b4102.jpgThe Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine has opened a criminal case against the unauthorized use of funds Ukraine obtained from the sale of carbon credits under the Kyoto Protocol, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has said.

"The authorities continue to systematically terrorize the opposition without any respect for the law or Constitution. I just learned from the investigator that a criminal case has been opened against me personally for allegedly spending environmental funds on pensions during the crisis, for committing a serious crime and paying pensions when the country was in a serious crisis," Yulia Tymoshenko said today following her questioning at the Prosecutor General’s Office.

"They wanted to present me with the charges and orders not to leave Kyiv, but they have no right to do so under procedural law without the presence of a lawyer," she added.
