Iranian Experts to Check Jiroft Hauled in London

 

06 August 2004

 

 

Iran plans to dispatch a team of experts to Briton to check the authenticity of some alleged Jiroft artifacts detected in London’s Heathrow airport as as an Arab of Kuwaiti national was smuggling them.


Some 3 weeks ago, British officers found these 5,000-year-old artifacts as they were screening the passenger, and they guessed they might be smuggled during the public plunder of the Jiroft civilization site 3 years ago.


“Right now the legal bureau of Iranian Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO) and diplomats are studying the seized items and Tehran is making its case to get them back. A team of experts, thus, would be soon given the mission to travel to Britain,” said Yunis Samadi, legal and property deputy of CHO.


He suggested Iran could invoke such international laws as 1970 convention on extraditing historical relics to return Jiroft artifacts, now in the custody of Heathrow’s customs.


Although the makeup of the team is yet to be decided, Mohammad Beheshti, president of Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism research center has recommended Dr. Yussef Madjidzadeh, head of excavation team in Jiroft to lead the delegation.
