Tymoshenko requests permission from PGO to travel to Brussels and Vilnius
Batkivshchyna Party leader Yulia Tymoshenko has appealed to the Prosecutor General`s Office of Ukraine with a second request for permission to travel to Brussels, Belgium from 22 to 24 June to participate in an expanded summit of the European People`s Party, according to the Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.
Additionally, a petition was filed with the investigator of the Prosecutor General`s Office regarding Yulia Tymoshenko`s traveling to Vilnius, Lithuania from 29 June to 1 July to attend an international high-level conference at the invitation of Finnish President Tarja Halonen and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
"We have once again reminded the investigator of the Prosecutor General`s Office A. Nechvoglod that according to article 129 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine he has to give a substantive answer to these petitions in 3 days, " said Tymoshenko’s defender Serhiy Vlasenko.
He recalled that the investigator has not given a reply to a previous request for traveling to Brussels; therefore, he has violated the law.
