Euroopan ihmisoikeustuomioistuin (EIT) on lähettänyt Ukrainan hallitukselle kommentoitavaksi Ukrainan entisen pääministerin Julia Timoshenkon valituksen, jossa Timoshenko väittää lukuisia EIS:n artikloita loukatun häntä vastaan käydyn rikosprosessin yhteydessä.

EIT:n jaosto on jo aikaisemmin katsonut, että Timoshenkon vapaudenriisto oli loukannut EIS 5 artiklaa. Nyt valituksessa on siis kyse varsinaisesta Timoshenkoa vastaan käydystä oikeudenkäynnistä.

EIT:n lehdistötiedotteesta:

The second application, brought on 10 August 2011, concerns the fairness of the criminal proceedings. In particular, relying on Article 6 §§ 1 and 3 (b) and (c) (right to a fair trial), Ms Tymoshenko complains of difficulties in defending her case before the national courts and questions their independence and impartiality. She also questions the quality of the provisions of the Criminal Code which were applied in her case, alleging a breach of Article 7 (no punishment without law). She further claims that the criminal case against her was politically inspired and constituted an abuse of the criminal system of justice, relying on Article 18 (limitation on use of restrictions on rights). Ms Tymoshenko makes a number of complaints under Articles 3 (prohibition of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment) and/or Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life): she alleges that a video tape recorded in the hospital where she has been treated since 9 May 2012, showing her in her room and during medical procedures, was published on the Internet and was also broadcast on the majority of regional TV channels. She further complains that at least three other video recordings ware available on the official website of the State Penitentiary Service, and that an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Ms Tymoshenko and her husband was published on the Internet. She also alleges that she faces difficulties in making any telephone calls from the hospital. Finally, she complains that she has been deprived of any possibility of communicating with the media and the outside world since 5 August 2011, which has had a negative impact on her political life.
