Judge Kireyev read out this decision after returning from the deliberation room. Though, he didn’t specify witch part of the motion was granted by court and didn’t say whether he is going to give Tymoshenko enough time to find new defenders, as assigned by Criminal Code, or not, reports Tymoshenko’s official website.

Kireyev also approved two appeals to Kyiv regional qualification-disciplinary committee about the improper performance of duties by lawyers Plakhotniuk and Siry.

As reported, at a court session on July 26 Kireyev read out Tymoshenko’s statement on dismissing lawyers Siry and Plakhotniuk. Tymoshenko noted that the judge has not given her lawyers enough time to study the case materials and that her lawyers could not prepare properly for the trial.
