Why is there no mention of the location of this medical establishment? Is it in Ukraine? Are my taxes going to be used to provide secure transport and adequate guard against absconding or will she pay the expenses incurred from this choice she has made to be treated elsewhere? Most important question for me is: - Will the Prosecutor General be granting all our inmates the same privilege?
