“I did not warn the penitentiary service and the patient about my visit. The patient is hospitalized and I have no right to break into her ward. The chief of the guard asked her whether she wanted to see me and she said she did not want to. If she expresses such wish – her daughter [Yevhenia Tymoshenko] is with her and she will contact me,” Lutkovska told journalists outside the clinic on Monday.
She also said that her visit was connected with numerous contradictory reports about Tymoshenko’s health state and the conditions in which she is kept. The ombudsman said that she wanted to clarify the situation herself.
Lutkovska said that he examined the premises that were used by Tymoshenko.
