More than 600 paintings believed to be included in the national patrimony of Romania and other EU states, some of them possibly stolen, were found out by Satu-Mare policemen at a 47-year-old man, 15 of them being in his car and other 629 in his house, according to the Police. The man was stopped in traffic at the end of last week near Dacia village of Satu Mare County. In his car, the police found 15 paintings, some wooden chests and crafted items, without legal papers to prove their origin. Later, the policemen searched the man’s house where they found other 629 paintings believed to be included in the national cultural patrimony of Romania and other states in the European Union, some of which are believed to come from thefts, the Romanian Police say.
