BRUSSELS, May 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine intends to invite European experts and observers to a cassation trial over the Yulia Timoshenko criminal case, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said after the 15th meeting of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Council here on Tuesday.
He noted that the criminal case versus Timoshenko is not a political manhunt, but the European principle of the supremacy of law in effect. “All people are equal to the law, including the former prime minister,” the incumbent Ukrainian premier said.
Ukraine intends to hold a cassation trial over the Timoshenko case “in the maximum open way with all legal rights of the defendant observed.”
