You're reading: Kuzmin: Prosecutor’s office investigating case of Tymoshenko’s causing bodily injuries to prison officer
on social media

Asked whether prosecutors have more charges to bring against Tymoshenko in addition to those regarding the purchase of ambulances by the Ukrainian government and the utilization of proceeds from selling greenhouse emission quotas under the Kyoto Protocol, Kuzmin said, “Apart from these, there is a case on Yulia Tymoshenko causing bodily injuries to a detention facility officer in line of duty.”

“There are other cases as well. They are also being investigated. And I can assure you that we won’t keep a single case. Each of them will be completed within the time stipulated by the law and forwarded to courts.”

Kuzmin said back in December 2011 that Tymoshenko accompanied by a number of parliamentarians had broken into Kyiv pretrial detention facility in 2003. “She [Tymoshenko] obstructed the institution’s normal work, threatened the facility workers, and personally caused bodily injuries to one of them, an officer,” he said.
