UKRAINIAN WORLD CONGRESS PRESIDENT MEЕTS WITH
UKRAINE’S HEAD OF THE PROSECUTOR GENERAL’S
DEPARTMENT OF INVESTIGATION OF PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT CASES
On August 26, 2011, Ukrainian World Congress President (UWC) Eugene Czolij, together with Ukrainian Canadian Congress President Paul Grod, met in Kyiv with Ukraine’s Head of the Prosecutor General’s Department of Investigation of Particularly Important Cases, Andrii Kurys.
The UWC President conveyed the dismay of Ukrainians worldwide about the pressure being exerted by Ukraine’s government structures on political opponents in Ukraine, and particularly the way in which the court case against former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is being carried out. He also focused on the unreasonable arrest of the former Prime Minister and the startling decisions of the court to refuse Yulia Tymoshenko’s requests for a reasonable delay to prepare her defence and for medical attention from her personal physician.
Eugene Czolij also emphasized that the UWC would continue to monitor the judicial proceedings of political opponents in Ukraine.
