"Tymoshenko... selective justice by Ukraine," Says Brok
Reacting to today's ruling by the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Julia Tymoshenko vs. Ukraine, the Chairman of the European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Elmar Brok MEP, said: "The ruling by the European Court of Human Rights confirms the trial against Ms Tymoshenko was politically-motivated. Ms Tymoshenko must be freed immediately."
"The ruling illustrates the selective and politically-motivated justice in Ukraine. The European Court of Human Rights found that Ms Tymoshenko's pre-trial detention had been arbitrary. Ukraine is still miles away from fulfilling European standards.
