KIEV, October 3 - RAPSI. Ukraine's parliament will examine draft laws that will help Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko avoid prison if approved, the parliamentary speaker said at a meeting of the conciliation board on Monday.
Earlier, the opposition submitted several draft laws to parliament, proposing to acquit former top officials who made disputable decisions.
The opposition MPs also proposed decriminalizing the Criminal Code article on abuse of power and office of what Tymoshenko is accused.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office has 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.
