The court of appeal of Amsterdam has postponed the final decision about the owner of the exhibits of the exhibition “Crimea: Gold and secrets of the Black sea”, known as Scythian gold. It is reported RIA Novosti on Tuesday, July 16.
It is noted that at present the court cannot assess who has the right to claim Scythian gold. It is expected that the final decision will be made in six months.
In April 2017, the appeals court of Amsterdam has received a complaint of museums of the Crimea to the decision on the transfer of Scythian gold Ukraine. The district court in December of 2016, decided to give the exhibits to Kiev, because Crimea is not a sovereign state and can not name the archaeological artifacts to their cultural heritage.
Argument on exhibits between Kiev and Simferopol began in 2014, after the Crimea became part of Russia. The exhibition “Crimea: Gold and secrets of the Black sea” at that time was held in the Allard Pierson Museum in the Netherlands.
