Penitentiary service: Video surveillance in Tymoshenko's cell not conducted during massages
The report notes that as of Jan. 31, Tymoshenko had 11 massage sessions, which are performed at the request of the prisoner in her prison cell.
"A female representative of the health care department of Kharkiv Regional State Administration, a female medical employee of the colony and a female employee of the colony's surveillance service are present in the cell during massage sessions. The presence of these employees of the colony in the room where the massage sessions are carried out is envisaged by the current regulatory framework and this cannot regarded as humiliation or a violation of human rights," the press office reported.
