Tymoshenko verdict could be aired live

The Pechersky District Court in Kyiv has allowed the television broadcast of the trial in the gas case during the announcement of the verdict to former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, as well as photographing and video taping by reporters of what is happening in the courtroom.

The decision was announced by presiding judge Rodion Kireyev on Thursday after he examined a request from Tymoshenko's lawyers, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent said.

At the same time, state prosecutors were not against allowing the photographing and video taping of the court debates
