The findings of the illegal forensic medical examination do not create a legal basis for requiring Yulia Tymoshenko to be in court for the fabricated case against her involving United Energy Systems of Ukraine, the ex-premier’s lawyer, Serhiy Vlasenko, has said, according to Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"The examination was ordered illegally in violation of the law. Incidentally, the experts didn’t answer the question whether Yulia Tymoshenko can participate in court based on her health. The experts didn’t give a positive answer to this question. They wrote some nonsense that doesn’t mean anything, because you can apply anything to what they wrote - for example, attending a university lecture. Therefore, you can’t say that there are grounds, even considering this falsified examination, to bring Yulia Tymoshenko to court," said Serhiy Vlasenko.

On June 25, the Kyivsky District Court of Kharkiv unlawfully ordered a forensic medical examination to determine the state of Yulia Tymoshenko’s health and whether she can participate in court. On June 28, the ex-premier refused to undergo an examination by the court-appointed experts. As a result, the supposed experts based their findings on the results of a review of medical documents.

Today the court postponed the trial until July 31, claiming that all the participants of the trial had to be informed of the results of the forensic medical examination.
