Renat Kuzmin, deputy
prosecutor general, told Segodnya daily newspaper that apart from
investigating Tymoshenko for crimes involving her former gas-trading
company and the 1996 murder of member of parliament Yevhen Shchebran,
she now is under investigation for assault.

“There is a case on
Yulia Tymoshenko’s causing bodily injuries to the worker of the
isolation ward while he was on duty. There are other cases, they are
being investigated. And I can assure you that none of the cases will
remain. Every one of them will be finished in the legally defined
term and sent to court,” Kuzmin said.

Serhiy Vlasenko,
Tymoshenko’s defense lawyer, said the new case was “an idiocy”
cooked up by Kuzmin, whom he described as a person with “no moral
limits.”
