We’ve been following the story of the Koh Ker warrior auction here, this is just a summary story by AFP on the current controversy.
The Koh Ker Warrior that was to be auctioned by Sotheby’s was once again in the news last week when US officials moved to seize the statue from the auction house, alleging that Sotheby’s knew that the statue was looted. A court appeal has ruled a stay on the seizure, but the arguments will be heard again before a judge on Thursday.
