Paris, August 19, 2011

We continue to closely monitor developments in the trial of Mrs Tymoshenko.

France has already expressed her grave concern, which she communicated directly to the Ukrainian authorities by summoning the Ukrainian ambassador in Paris on 10 August.

The judicial proceedings must be conducted in an impartial and transparent manner, while guaranteeing the rights of the defence and allowing adequate medical follow-up./.
