Kiev: Former Ukrainian Prime
Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been moved from a Kiev prison to
a remote prison colony, her party says.

Tymoshenko was woken up at night without explanation,
carried to a police vehicle on a stretcher and transported to
a prison colony in the city of Kharkiv early today, her aide
Oleksandr Turchynov said, citing prison officials.

"The current authorities are violating the court verdict
that ruled to keep Tymoshenko in jail, not in a colony,"
Turchynov said.

Police authorities were unavailable for immediate
comments.

Tymoshenko, the nation`s top opposition leader, was
sentenced to seven years in jail in October in a trial the
West has condemned as politically motivated. She has been
reportedly been in poor health, bedridden and denied medical
care while locked up in a Kiev prison cell.
