PGO did not bring criminal case against Tymoshenko
On fact of high treason
The Prosecutor’s General Office of Ukraine did not bring any criminal case against Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko on facts of high treason.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Tetyana Kornyakova claimed this to journalists in the Cabinet of Ministers today.
“No case was brought. There was just a letter [from SBU] that listed facts and speculations, and asked to create an investigatory group. But such a group may be created only within frames of a criminal case demanding a joint investigation”, T.Kornyakova said.
The deputy Prosecutor General stressed that, as there is no criminal case, there is no need to create a group to investigate into it.
Besides, T.Kornyakova has no information about whether Yulia Tymoshenko addressed to PGO on facts of round-the-clock surveillance and tapping her telephone talks.
The deputy Prosecutor General also stressed she has no information about facts of pressure put upon her colleagues, about which Yulia Tymoshenko announced at a press conference on September 8.
“I make decisions independently, upon agreeing them with the Prosecutor General, because he is the head of the PGO. No pressure was put on me personally. I have no contacts with Bankova [the Presidential Secretariat’s street]”, T.Kornyakova pointed out.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on September 8 Yulia Tymoshenko claimed she was summoned to PGO on Sept 11.
