Bribery Inquiry Into Tymoshenko Former PM Of Ukraine Reopened

Posted by Info on 12/05/2010

Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said authorities must study government activities under Tymoshenko that allegedly cost the country $12.5bn in 2009, trebling the deficit.

Prosecutors are reopening a bribery investigation into former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko which was suspended in 2005, shortly after she came to power. Soon after she came to power in 2005, prosecutors stopped investigating whether she had attempted to bribe a judge to end proceedings against a former colleague at the gas company where she was boss until 1999.
