5 PARIS ART EXPERTS ARRESTED OVER LOOTED ANTIQUITIES

On 25 June, KYC 360 reported an article in The Times saying that 5 eminent Parisian antiques specialists have been arrested on suspicion of selling looted Middle Eastern artefacts worth tens of millions of euros, and are suspected of masking the origin of the items before selling them to clients, including some of the world’s leading museums.  They are said to be being questioned by officers from the Central Office for the Fight against the Trafficking of Cultural Goods and the Central Office for the Fight Against Major Financial Crime.
