French Ambassador for Human Rights François Zimeray was not permitted to meet with imprisoned ex Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko in Kachanivska prison colony №54 in Kharkiv.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, François Zimeray said this to journalists who gathered near Kachanivska prison colony.

“We submitted a corresponding application, but  our request was  turned down”, said the Ambassador.

He noted that a reason of the refusal was carrying out of investigatory actions towards Yu. Tymoshenko by SBU investigators.
