United States announced its intention to re – artefacts to Iraq, including panels dating back to the Sumerian cuneiform 2100 BC, after he ran away from him illegally to the stores , “Hubei lobby”. “Iraqi Ambassador to Washingto n Farid Yassin and Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nizar al-Khairallah are scheduled to attend the extradition ceremony,” US immigration and customs officials said in a statement.
Hubei Lope, an Oklahoma-based shop specializing in the sale of works of art and antiques, agreed last July to hand over the artifacts mad e in what is now Iraq about 4,000 years ago and paid $ 3 million to settle a civil lawsuit filed by the US Department of Justice. Federal prosecutors said that “the stickers on the shipments where the effects arrived and described them as samples of a hermaphrodite.
Hoppe Lopez said she did not intend to display the artifacts in the museum, but did not specify what she would have done with them. Charges included cuneiform letters, one of the oldest writing systems in the world. Many of the tablets originated in the c ity of Ari Sakk, dating from 2100 to 1600 BC in the periods known as the Third Ur, Or the old Babylo nian era. The remains included two clay tablets bearing royal inscriptions of the second type of lichen dating back to about 2500 BC.
The purchase of Hubei Lubi for $ 1.6 million worth of damage by traders in the UAE and Israel is a lot of caveats and the company has ignored warnings that the holdings may have been looted from archaeological sites in Iraq,” Justice Department officials said.
