You're reading: Penitentiary service says Web cameras in Tymoshenko hospital were legally installed

The installation of Web cameras in the premises of Ukrzaliznytsia's Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in Kharkiv, where former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is undergoing treatment, was completely legal, the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine reported on Thursday.

It said that three of the six Web cameras had been installed by
representatives of the State Penitentiary Service in accordance with the
current legislation in Ukraine.

“Before prisoner Tymoshenko was admitted to the inpatient department
of the central clinical hospital, three Web cameras were installed to
constantly monitor convicts, ensure the safety of patients and monitor
the actions of the staff and security guards of the Kachanivska penal
colony. The equipping of the room with video cameras and other means of
protection and security meets the requirements of the current
legislation,” reads the statement.

As reported, the Batkivschyna United Opposition earlier issued a
statement in which it claimed that the State Penitentiary Service of
Ukraine did not know who had set up three of the six Web cameras on the
ninth floor of Ukrzaliznytsia’s Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in
Kharkiv, where former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is
undergoing treatment.

“We’re demanding that the government of [Ukrainian President Viktor] Yanukovych stop violating Tymoshenko’s right to privacy and other
provocative actions with respect to her, determine the names and posts
of perverts who are constantly spying on the opposition leader, and open
criminal proceedings against the violators,” reads the statement.
