UK legal help sought for Ukraine ex-PM

Yulia Tymoshenko was convicted last year of criminally abusing her office in what supporters say was a sham trial.

    Ukraine's opposition parties have been protesting in Kiev over last month's parliamentary elections.

    They say they were rigged and that Yulia Tymoshenko, jailed former prime minister, was the victim of a sham trial.

    Her daughter now hopes a team of lawyers from London will prove her mother's innocence.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports.
