Stolen Bronze Age Dagger Returns Home

. Vrnitev pomembnega muzejskega eksponata je v sodelovanju z Interpolom in Registrom ukradenih umetnin (The Art Loss Register) sprva vodila Policija RS, ker pa je zastaralni rok za pregon kaznivega dejanja Sloveniji zastaral, je vrnitev prevzelo Ministrstvo za zunanje zadeve s pomočjo Veleposlaništva RS v Londonu. 5. julija 2018 se je bodalo vrnilo v Slovenijo, 6. julija pa ga je prevzel Narodni muzej Slovenije. • Foto: Narodni muzej Slovenije/Tomaž Lauko
