Court allows live broadcasting of Tymoshenko's sentencing

10:31 09/09/2011

KIEV, September 9 - RAPSI. The court has partially sided with former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's request to allow her trial to be filmed, by allowing filming of her sentencing hearing, RIA Novosti reported from the courtroom on Thursday.

The first hearings of Tymoshenko's case were broadcast on television. However, the court later prohibited filming when it started hearing witness testimony.

The Ukrainian Prosecutor Generals Office has charged Tymoshenko with abuse of power in connection with her approval of a Russian gas contract in 2009, when she was serving as prime minister. She was arrested on August 5.

During the Thursday hearing, Tymoshenko said the court may issue its judgment by the end of next week.
