More Stolen Antiquities on Show in US

If Zahi Hawass is found guilty of allowing illegal movement of antiquities out of Egypt for exhibitions in the US and Australia, it follows that the organizations currently in custody of such objects are equally guilty of participation in an illegal process. In the case of the Tutankhamun exhibitions, this would I believe mean  companies like Arts and Exhibitions International and AEG Exhibitions (also did the Vatican Museum, Titanic, Princess Diana exhibitions). Perhaps therefore they should return all profits made from the exhibition of what now seem likely to be ruled as "stolen artefacts" over to the Egyptian people? I assume they are insured against losses from just such a situation arising.
