More Cultural Racketeering In Egypt
Egyptian authorities are belatedly investigating the disappearence of 157 objects from Saqquara. The Antiquities Coalition has yet to comment on such cultural racketeering and the distinct possibility that high level insiders are involved. Hopefully, this will not be yet another case where investigations of high level officials go nowhere. As CPO has previously observed, grandstanding is easy, but taking real care of one's cultural heritage is hard.
