According to Interpol, due to how crime statistics are recorded, for instance, crime is reported by the act (i.e. burglary) rather than the types of objects stolen, such as fine art, it is difficult to gain an exact idea of how many items of cultural property are stolen throughout the world.
Criminals utilise sophisticated networks to plan, steal, conceal and export stolen art. It therefore requires highly sophisticated methods to trace, recover and repatriate assets with their legal owners. This is where Sentry Intelligence can help.
