You're reading: Experts need time to provide conclusion on Tymoshenko’s health

Medical experts need additional time to provide a commission their conclusions about the state of health of former Premier Yulia Tymoshenko due to her refusal to cooperate, Kharkiv Regional State Administration has reported on its official Web site.

“We’re reporting that Yulia Tymoshenko wrote an application in which, without explanation, she refused to be examined by the experts, delaying the process of preparation of the conclusion. According to the demands of the law, now the medical review is being performed by the experts by studying the medical documentation of Yulia Tymoshenko and materials of the case. Because of the refusal to permit a personal examination, and also because of the great volume of medical documentation provided, which is to be studied thoroughly, on July 7 the experts informed the court they needed more time to provide the commission with their conclusions,” read a text posted on the Web site of the regional state administration.

As reported, Kyiv Regional Court in Kharkiv during its hearing of the UESU case on June 25 decided to order a medical assessment of Tymoshenko. Kharkiv regional medical review bureau was charged to conducting this assessment.

The next hearing of the UESU case will take place on July 10.
