The (NWO) Natural World Organization in promoting intergovernmental transparancy and accountability amongst all world nations is concerned at the unfolding events surrounding the prosecution of Yulia Tymoshenko in Ukraine. ‘Natural justice’ is the seminal pillar determining a free world. It appears to be under direct attack in Ukraine by those public officials who are mandated by the people to protect and ensure it.
Television footage and reports of the debacle in which the prosecutor was granted the opportunity by Judge Rodion Kireyev to read out the indictment against Ms Tymoshenko without her or her lawyers being present in the courtroom, demonstrates a failing model of jurisprudence in Ukraine.
Our law experts, in continuing to dissect the evidence and charges relating to the case of Yulia Tymoshenko, are concerned that the case against Ms Yulia Tymoshenko appears to be politically motivated, weak and fabricated. Our Law Commissioner will be submitting a detailed letter during the course of this week which will enumerate various concerns.
Unfolding events issuing from Ukraine indicate the likelihood of an unhealthy linkage between an incumbent Government and the country’s Judiciary. Ukraine has a long and proud history, even though final independence was only achieved in 1991, and it is sad to all onlookers in the international community that a founding member of the United Nations now finds itself in the international spotlight for onerous reasons.
Any fledging country attempting to create a stable environment will struggle in its early years, but it is of paramount importance that transparency of justice be maintained, not just for the watching world but most importantly for the sake of its own people.
I would therefore remind the Government and the Judiciary of Ukraine that the world is watching this case. Should this case continue in its present form and the eventual outcome be proven as political orchestration by powers from behind the Judiciary, then be assured, that we, along with many other concerned organizations will not rest until justice is done. It is important that we do not overlook or underestimate the power of International Law in changing circumstances.
We would therefore, with the greatest respect, urge the Government and Judiciary of Ukraine to ensure that the world sees absolute transparency in dealing with Yulia Tymoshenko.
