Wikipedia files lawsuit against Turkey in ECHR

Wikipedia has filed a lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights, to lift the ban on all language versions of Wikipedia, in place since April of 2017 as an ‘administrative measure‘, which Wikipedia has been fighting for two years. Wikimedia  Foundation (the nonprofit organisation which runs Wikipedia) said in a statement: ‘We are taking this action as part of our continued commitment to knowledge and freedom of expression as fundamental rights for every person’. The topic is mentioned in discussions of Turkey’s bid for EU membership.
