His lawyer, Marina Mahitkova, told Radio Liberty that the complaint had been filed against an unknown criminal, as, according to her, it is currently unclear who recorded the conversation and who posted it online.
The case will be considered by the court in the prescribed manner.
On January 10, 2013, a YouTube user named Anezka posted an audio recording entitled “Julija Tymosenkova mluvi k manzelovi” (Yulia Tymoshenko talks to her husband). Despite the poor quality of the recording, it is possible to understand that the sides are talking to each other about how they spent their holidays, as well as a delay in the endorsement of a decision by the ECHR under Tymoshenko’s complaint due to the maternity leave of Judge Hanna Yudkivska. In particular, the woman in the recording says: “We still need to work on this issue, and the [judge] will cough up such meanness.”
