Espancada na prisão


"Mrs. Tymoshenko, 51, is ill.

She refuses to be treated in a Ukrainian hospital or by Ukrainian doctors, because she fears they may be ordered by the government to harm her.

Now Tymoshenko has gone on hunger strike after prison officials tried to force her to a hospital. Last Friday, she was beaten black and blue and punched in the stomach, according to her lawyer, Serhiy Vlasenko.

Henadiy Tyurin, the regional prosecutor of Kharkov, told reporters that officials did use some force.

"According to the law ... the prison service has the right to use physical measures. She [Tymoshenko] was picked up, carried to the car and taken to the hospital," he said."
