Ukrainian politician Yulia Tymoshenko was sentenced to 7 years of prison for abuse of office. I have the feeling that she not as innocent as she wants everybody and especially the European Union to think. Aren´t there any money laundering issues with German and Austrian banks?
Never heard of the woman, and your opinion of her guilt or otherwise is of no consequence. What is this, trial be the internet? By this tirade you are interfering with the result of any appeal there may be, her lawyers may claim that trial by internet is intefering with the possibillity of a fair hearing. An appeal court may agree and just free her or let the setence stand without having a hearing.
If you never heard of that woman, then read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yulia_Tymoshenko There no trial going, she is imprisoned. The verdict is considered to be with political background. I am seeking more information about the charges.
