The state penitentiary service said Friday a team of German doctors examined Tymoshenko earlier in April and confirmed she is too unwell to go to court. Tymoshenko is serving a seven-year sentence for signing a gas deal with Russia in 2009 without authority to do so and faces new charges of trying to embezzle $405 million from United Energy Systems when she headed the state corporation in the 1990s.
The service released a statement saying she had been transferred from prison to the Ukrzaliznytsi Clinic for treatment recommended by the German and Ukrainian doctors who have examined her.
