Yulia Tymoshenko not in court due to poor health

pr_a3785.jpgFormer Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has refused to attend the preliminary hearing in the United Energy Systems of Ukraine case due to serious health problems.

"Exercising my right under the Code of Criminal Procedure, I ask that the preliminary hearing in the above-mentioned case be held without me," Yulia Tymoshenko wrote in her statement to the Kyivsky District Court of Kharkiv.

Earlier the ex-premier’s lawyer Oleksandr Plakhotnyuk said that he will ask the court to postpone the proceedings due to Yulia Tymoshenko’s health problems that don’t allow her to be in court.
