The judge was forced to announce a break in today’s humiliating judicial hearing in Yulia Tymoshenko’s prison cell after the ex-premier`s condition worsened, lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko has said, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"They summoned and questioned the prison doctor who said that Tymoshenko’s condition is serious and that she really can’t continue to take part in this farce. He also said that in the last three hours her pain has increased significantly," Vlasenko told journalists.

He added that during the proceedings Yulia Tymoshenko was lying in bed and made several comments that her condition has worsened and that she can’t even move.

Only after the prison doctor confirmed that Yulia Tymoshenko’s condition has worsened did the judge announce a break. “I have never in my life seen a more insolent, cynical and inhuman court,” said Vlasenko.
