Repatriation of stolen artefacts

An article about how the Greek and Italian authorities are teaming up to tackle the repatriation of illegally traded artefacts: "Greece has joined forces with Italy in a joint attempt to locate and repatriate priceless stolen antiquities, an effort that could have serious ramifications for Europe's leading museums." Of course, the ramifications won't be confined to Europe's museums, and the status of claims of national governements seeking to repatriate artefacts may also be impacted by the Italian and Greek actions and their outcomes.
