A group of public prosecutors earlier Friday lifted financial abuse accusation from Tymoshenko in the Ukrainian energy corporation’s fraud case, prosecutor Lyudmila Petrovskaya said at a session of Kievsky district court in Kharkiv and another prosecutor Mikhail Chepko supported her position. “Evidence gathered in the criminal case does not fully prove Tymoshenko’s guilt,” Petrovskaya said, adding that “gathering of new evidence is impossible any longer in the criminal case.
Ukrainian Security Service opened a criminal case against Tymoshenko in October 2011, suspecting her of massive tax evasion, embezzlement and attempted embezzlement of budget funds through illegal VAT tax reimbursement, forgery by an official and income tax dodging. “Corporation Unified Energy Systems of Ukraine has introduced a financial scheme of concealing foreign currency revenues through controlled offshore companies in budget embezzlement,” the country’s security service stated earlier.
