Swiss Customs recovers Han Dynasty’s statue from UK

FRANCE: Chinese Han Dynasty’s statue which was coming from UK was recovered by Swiss Customs. The statue measuring about 47 centimeter (18.5 inches) is said to be of a servant, Federal Department of Culture said.

It was recovered by customs officers at Basel Mulhouse airport in a package originating from Britain and bound for an address in the canton of Vaud, near Geneva.

“In Switzerland, cultural items must be declared,” said the ministry, adding that because the parcel was not declared as such, it was confiscated.
