KIEV, November 5 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, or parliament, will consider bills on medical treatment of convicts at medical institutions outside Ukraine on Thursday, November 7, according to a decision passed by the Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday.
These bills envisage amendments to the country’s laws to allow prisoners to undergo medical treatment abroad. Apart from that, one of such bills initiated by the opposition factions provides for “automatic pardoning of Yulia Timoshenko in line with the European Court ruling. The so-called “Timoshenko case” is a stumbling block on the path of Ukraine’s signing the Association Agreement with the European Union, which is planned to be done at an Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius on November 28-29. The European Union had it straight that the signing of this agreement directly depended on Timoshenko’s release.
Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko is serving her seven-year jail term at a prison in Kharkov, Ukraine, for abuse of office while signing gas contracts with Russia in 2009. For over a year she has been in a hospital located in Kharkov.
