KIEV, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The Pechorsky District Court delayed a verdict against the former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Timoshenko until October 11, presiding judge Rodion Kireyev said and went out for consultations on Friday.
“The court announced a break in the trial until October 11,” the presiding judge said.
After a two-hour interval in the court session Yulia Timoshenko was expected to make her last statement, but the defendant did not it, because she asked for “12 hours to prepare her last statement and to work with the lawyers.” After that the judge stated that he resigns for consultations in the trial until 10 a.m. Moscow time on October 11.
Kireyev said earlier on Friday that only the immediate parties to the trial and journalists will attend a court session, at which the verdict will be pronounced.
