Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko believes the request by prosecutor Liliya Frolova to include in the case file her allegedly incorrect public statements about the court is an attack on her right to free speech, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.
"The prosecutor is asking that my comments in the press and twitter against the government and court be added to the case. They’re asking that I be punished for these statements," Yulia Tymoshenko wrote on Twitter.
"Now they’ll probably open a case against Twitter and impose a travel ban on iPad. They sense that 140 characters is stronger than 140 gryphon officers," she added ironically.
Mykola Siryi then insisted that all posts from Yulia Tymoshenko’s Twitter page and other public statements in the press be read aloud in the courtroom.
