Pechersk court to issue verdict on May 16
The Pechersk District Court of Kyiv at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 16, will resume the hearing in Yulia Tymoshenko’s appeal of the resolution of the Prosecutor General’s Office on opening a criminal case against her over 2009 gas agreements, and will likely issue a ruling that same day, according to Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.
"I can predict two things - that on Monday, most likely, Judge Suprun will issue a verdict and, secondly, that this decision will be written in advance in the Presidential Administration and that the judge will not take into account any of the evidence we provided," Yulia Tymoshenko told the press on May 12 after a break was announced in the court proceedings.
"All the evidence, documents, arguments that I presented in the courtroom clearly indicate that the case has been cynically fabricated. I think that the judge who presided over these hearings has noticed this as well. I think the representative of the Prosecutor General`s Office who was actually a party to the litigation has once again realized that this falsification will not remain outside of the public attention," she said.
"This is a test for the Pechersk Court: if on the background of all the evidence provided Judge Suprun, who presided over the hearings, still implements the dishonest and illegal orders of the president, and rules that the case was opened legally, then everyone will realize once again, although everyone knows this anyway, that in Ukraine there is no court, there are only performers of special-ordered and illegal directives of the president of Ukraine," Yulia Tymoshenko added.
