Batkivshchyna Party leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko believes the court must give a separate assessment to the absence in the case file of the original directive that was issued by her to Naftohaz chairman Oleh Dubyn before talks with Gazprom in 2009, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

“If the main document around which all negotiations are held and the criminal case is formed isn’t an original, then what was the Prosecutor General’s Office doing? Why didn’t they get the original and add it to the case? I would like the court to give a separate assessment to this,” Yulia Tymoshenko said today while testifying.

The ex-premier noted that case file doesn’t contain original documents with her personal signature. “I don’t rule out that the directives in the case file were forged. It is unprecedented when the main document in a criminal case isn’t added to the records,” she said.

The court has announced a 10-minute technical break
