Tymoshenko's Lawyer Not Allowed to See the Defendant
The arrest of the leader of "Batkivshchyna", Yulia Tymoshenko, has deprived her of adequate protection in the lawsuit, says her lawyer, Yuriy Sukhov.
"At present, I do not have the permission for a meeting with Yulia Tymoshenko, and out-of-hours it is impossible to attend the pre-trial detention center" - said Sukhov, according to the press service of "Batkivshchyna".
In Sukhov's opinion, the main problem lies in the fact that the court sessions last from early morning till late evening.
"If the sessions are going to last just like they do now - all working day long - then I'll actually be deprived of the opportunity to meet with my defendant and to agree on certain positions", - he stressed.
