Illicit trafficking of Khmer artifacts:

The ad hoc Group of experts took note with grave concern of the ongoing looting and trading of works of art, in particular sculptures originating from the Koh Ker area, as clearly illustrated by Mr. Eric Bourdonneau (EFEO) in his presentation.

It is therefore recommended that ANA takes action in cooperation with UNESCO, INTERPOL and ICOM, to obtain the restitution to Cambodia of illegally exported works of art, under the framework of the 1970 UNESCO Convention.
