Egypt restores stolen King Cheops cartouche samples Friday

The Egyptian embassy in Berlin will restore on Friday samples of a cartouche of King Cheops, which were stolen by German researches a year ago from the Great Pyramid.

Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh al-Damaty said he appreciates the efforts of the German authorities for cooperating with Egypt to restore the items.

“This came in response to what the ministry did after the incidents were revealed," he said. "It contacted the foreign ministry to take legal measures to restore the items and conducted measures against the German researches for stealing artifacts that belong to the ancient civlization, which is within UNESCO's lists of international heritage sites."

"The ministry took legal measures," he added. "The incidents were referred to the prosecutor for investigation. UNESCO was also addressed to take the necessary measures against the German researchers."
