The European Court of Human Rights declared the actions of the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine to be legal in respect of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, the Penitentiary Service press office informs.

"The Court recognized that Tymoshenko has received considerable attention from the Ukrainian authorities, who have made significantly greater efforts than is usually provided for measures to protect the health of all prisoners," the press office statement reads. 

The State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine recalled that in November and December 2011, the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture visited Kyiv detention center, where Tymoshenko was detained, and found no reason to worry about health and medical support of the prisoner.

The court also found inadmissible complaint of Tymoshenko about round-the-clock surveillance on her in the hospital, as well as alleged beating during transfer to the hospital on April 20, 2012.

"Thus, the European Court of Human Rights officially confirmed the absence of torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment against Tymoshenko," the press service says.

As a consequence, the applications, made by Tymoshenko and her defense, were prejudiced, biased and unreasonable compromised actions of the State Penitentiary Service staff.
