“We collected materials of the pre-trial investigation containing evidence that Tymoshenko really did order the murder, together with [former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo] Lazarenko. Today the investigatory group of the Prosecutor General’s Office came to Tymoshenko to notify her of being suspected of having committed the crime,” Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said on Friday, Jan.18. 

He also said that the article under which Tymoshenko is suspected foresees punishment in the form of a sentence to life in prison.

“Article 93 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine under which Tymoshenko is suspected of having committed the crime foresees life in prison as a maximum punishment for organization of murder, but only court can decide on this,” he said.
