It is amazing to me that people who have taken or stolen things that do not belong to them refuse to give them back, even when its years later and its a different set of politicians, curators, and for lack of a better description, a different society. If it is not rightfully theirs, then it should be very straight forward and simple. Country’s financial situations should have no affect on the decisions made when it comes to right and wrong.
It is only fair that the items are returned to their rightful abode, regardless of what Hollywood has to say about it. Why does a well known actor have to be involved to help promote to get the artwork back to the owners, this seems absurd, however I hope that they get the job done , it’s the right thing to do.
