A Ukrainian court has held a hearing inside Yulia Tymoshenko’s prison cell, where the opposition leader was in bed with back problems.

Prosecutors formally asked for her ‘re-arrest’ on additional charges of tax evasion and theft. In October she was sentenced to seven years for abuse of office, in a case that has caused an outcry in the West.
