KIEV, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian ex-Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko believes that the Prosecutor-General’s Office did not supply to the Pechersky District Court of Kiev the evidence proving that she abused her office, when she signed gas contracts with Russia in 2009. She spoke about it at the court session on Wednesday, at which she gave evidence at court. “The bill of indictment does not contain any information or facts proving that I violated the law,” Timoshenko said.
Timoshenko is sure that in order to find her guilty of the abuse of office, when she gave instructions to Naftogaz Ukrainy to sign gas contracts with Russia, the Prosecutor-General’s Office should have supplied to the court the evidence proving the fact that the issue of instructions is within the exclusive competence of the Cabinet of Ministers as a collective body. “Under the law on the Cabinet of Ministers, the issue of such instructions is not within the exclusive authority of the Cabinet,” Timoshenko added.
