  • [01] EEC Directive for return of cultural objects to Greece

  • [01] EEC Directive for return of cultural objects to Greece

    A total of 49 ancient coins were returned to Greece during the period 2004-2007 following an amicable settlement within the framework of the EEC directive for the return of cultural goods unlawfully removed from the territory of a member state.

    One of the coins was returned from Britain and the rest from Sweden.

    A European Commission report assessing the implementation of Council Directive 93/7/EEC calls for its amendment to make its implementation more effective mostly by simplifying procedures, broadening the list of goods it concerns and improving administrative cooperation at European level, which has been a Greek request.

    The same report mentions that in 2007 Germany notified Greece of three confiscations made on its territory, which among others, concerned 90 ancient objects that were unlawfully removed from Greece and were scheduled to be returned in 2009.

    Greece has filed applications with all competent authorities in the states where the directive is implemented requesting a search for 439 cultural objects stolen from churches and monasteries but the outcome was negative.
