The 51-year-old opposition leader is serving a seven-year
sentence on a separate abuse-of-office charge linked to a gas
deal she brokered with Russia in 2009 as prime minister.

A Ukrainian high court last month rejected her appeal
against that conviction and Tymoshenko’s lawyers now plan to
challenge it in the European Court for Human Rights.

Her trial in the city of Kharkiv for alleged tax evasion and
embezzlement going back to the 1990s has been put off several
times as she refused to attend because of back trouble for which
she is receiving treatment in a state-run hospital.
