United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has expressed his concern over the conviction of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, his spokesperson said.
Kiev's Pechersky District Court sentenced Tymoshenko on Tuesday to seven years in prison for abuse of office over her signing of a gas deal with Russia in 2009.
“The Secretary-General has noted the concerns voiced widely regarding the judicial proceedings involving the former Ukrainian Prime Minister and other officials,” Vannina Maestracci, Associate Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, said.
“And the Secretary-General expects the judicial proceedings, currently still ongoing, to be conducted in a fair and impartial manner and to follow due process,” she added.
