German Ambassador to Ukraine Hans-Jurgen Heimsoeth has said he doubts that Ukraine's ex-Premier Yulia Tymoshenko and ex-Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko are being kept in custody legally.
"Personally, I have not clarified the legal reasons for which Mrs. Tymoshenko has been kept in custody for six weeks," the ambassador said during a discussion entitled "Ukraine-EU Relations: Decisive Moment" at Institute of World Policy on Wednesday.
In addition, he said he also doubts that Lutsenko's arrest was legal.
