The paintings stolen from the Rotterdam museum were not burnt, lawyers say


The lawyers of Radu Dogaru, Eugen Darie and Alexandru Bitu said yesterday, at the District 3 Tribunal, that the three defendants told them that the paintings stolen from the Kunsthal Museum of Rotterdam were not burnt and they are waiting for the legal conditions to turn them to Dutch authorities. “We were waiting even today (yesterday) for this surprise, in the sense of statements, to confess to the judge details about the existence and the place where these paintings can be found,” one of the lawyers said, quoted by Mediafax. Moreover, Catalin Dancu, the lawyer of Radu Dogaru and of his mother Olga Dogaru claims that Dutch authorities verify if the Kunsthal Museum of Rotterdam, where the paintings were stolen from, infringed the security regulations on keeping the works of art. The court postponed the trial until September 10, over lack of procedure.
