The appeal against the decision of the Amsterdam court of appeal about the transfer of the Scythian gold collection to Ukraine will be filed till January 26. The appeal is being prepared, director of the Crimean Central Museum of Tauris Andrey Malgin said.
The Court of Appeal in Amsterdam on October 26 last year decided that the collection of Scythian gold must be transferred to Ukraine, the decision can be appealed in the Supreme Court of the Netherlands.
Crimean museums advocated to appeal this decision, while the appeal has not been filed.
"According to my information, all in time. We will file by January 26. The complaint is being prepared," Malgin said.
A collection of Scythian gold from four Crimean museums, about 2,000 artifacts, was taken to an exhibition at the Allard Pearson Museum in Amsterdam in early February 2014. In August 2014, the museum in the Netherlands decided not to transfer the exhibits to either Ukraine or Crimea until a competent judge or agreement between the parties decides.
