Asia Week Arrest

As reported by Chasing Aphrodite ('Asia Week Arrest: Japanese Dealer Charged With Selling', March 19th):
Japanese antiquities dealer Tatsuzo Kaku was arrested at Asia Week and charged on March 14th with criminal possession of a looted 2nd Century Buddhapada sculpture valued at more than $1 million, court records show. [...] The sculpture was seized by authorities on March 14 and will be returned to Pakistan. Kaku was arraigned on March 14 and will next appear in a Manhattan court on March 25th.
But arresting the foreigner is fine, but what about the other four dealers whose stuff was seized? These Americans also possessed what the authorities say were looted objects...
