Judge Rodion Kireyev has rejected the defense request for additional time to review the case file, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"This is a deliberate violation of my right to defense and disruption of the trial," Yulia Tymoshenko said, commenting on the judge’s ruling.

The ex-premier recalled that representative of the state prosecution Liliya Frolova needed almost 4 hours to read the nearly 80-page indictment and believes the court should use this as an example when providing time for the defense to review the case records.
