A court in Kharkiv, eastern Ukraine, has rejected an appeal from the jailed former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko for an easing of her prison conditions.
She is currently in a prison hospital and had wanted to be transferred to a rehabilitation centre for treatment for her chronic back condition. She has the right to appeal against the decision.
Tymoshenko also wants the use of a mobile phone and be allowed to take walks outside the prison walls.
Currently Tymoshenko is under criminal investigation for 10 alleged criminal acts; Ukrainian prosecutors have claimed Tymoshenko committed even more criminal acts beyond the abuse of power charges she was found guilty of in October 2011.
Her jailing has been condemned internationally as “selective justice” and “political persecution”.
