Crimean Tatar journalist Gulsum Halilova will appeal the criminal case opened against her in annexed Crimea in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) as Krym.Realii reported.

“Of course, Emil Kurbedinov (the lawyer of Gulsum Halilova) will deal with this case; we will file an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights,” Halilova said.

She emphasized that she considers the criminal case to be politically motivated.

“It is necessary to announce that the Crimean Tatars participate in some formations of bands, it is necessary to falsify more criminal cases against indigenous people of Crimea, who show their civilian pro-Ukrainian position. I did not enter any battalions, I worked as a field reporter,” Halilova added.
