Petition update

Save the ‘Art and Antiquities’ unit of the Federal Judicial Police

Feb 6, 2017 — All art lovers and those responsible for movable cultural heritage in Europe are worried about the loss of the ‘Art & Antiquities’ unit of the Belgian Federal police. Without this centralized unit, there is no more contact with Interpol and no more tracking of stolen or illicitly trafficked works of art, the latter helping to fund terrorist activities. We must reinstate it as an urgent priority. Belgium is known as a hub for the illicit trafficking of works of art! I am member of the association ‘Blue Shield’ whose goal is the protection of cultural heritage in times of peace as well as during armed conflict.
