Court: Ukrainian opposition leader improperly detained
Updated On: Apr 30 2013 05:47:14 AM CDT
Ukrainian opposition leader Yuliya Tymoshenko suffered arbitrary detention in 2011, violating multiple articles of the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Court of Human Rights found Tuesday.
Tymoshenko is serving a seven-year sentence for abusing her authority when she was prime minister.
The United States and Europe see the punishment as politically motivated.
