"This year may see return of all Dikmen stolen treasures

Cyprus Mail, "This year may see return of all Dikmen stolen treasures"
The process for the return to Cyprus of artefacts linked to the case of antiquities plundered by Turkish art dealer Aydin Dikmen is expected to be completed this year [...] an estimated 20,000 artefacts were smuggled out of Cyprus after the 1974 Turkish invasion
This includes two  17th century icons, of Christ and the Virgin Mary,  from the church of Saint Iacovos in Trikomo which were confiscated in Switzerland from a Russian collector. A lawsuit is underway.
