EU Ambassador once again prevented from visiting Yulia Tymoshenko
On Sunday the security guards outside the hospital ward where the former Prime Minister and opposition leader is undergoing treatment prevented Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira, European Union Ambassador to Ukraine, from visiting Ms Tymoshenko. They said that he did not have the relevant permission from the State Penitentiary Service.
Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira said that he had been awaiting permission to visit Ms Tymoshenko for almost 10 months and there was always a different excuse. He said that he would apply to the State Penitentiary Service for permission and pointed out that he remained in his post until the end of September.
