Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- A Ukrainian court said it will announce its verdict in the case of jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko on Aug. 29.

The High Specialized Court for Civil and Criminal Cases in the capital, Kiev, completed an appeal hearing into her conviction for abuse of office on Aug. 21 without issuing a verdict or indicating a date for the decision.

Tymoshenko asked the court to overturn her seven-year jail term. In October, she was convicted of abuse of office as a prime minister when signing a 10-year supply and transit accord with the Russian government on natural gas. The appeal needed to be heard before Tymoshenko could send her case to the European Court of Human Rights.
