KIEV, September 14 - RAPSI. Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko filed on Wednesday an appeal to the Kiev District Court on resuming the examination of the "gas" case, Tymoshenko's attorney Alexander Plakhotnyuk said.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office charged Tymoshenko with abuse of power in connection with her approval of a Russian gas contract in 2009 when she served as prime minister.
Tymoshenko was arrested on August 5.
The Kiev court postponed the hearing of the case until September 27, when arguments are expected to open. Last week the court announced that the case will be closed.
Tymoshenko said the court made a mistake by announcing the cases closure, as not all of the proofs have been examined.
