Glasgow Scholar Challenged

"Islamic glass available now"
Donna Yates has several times expressed her belief that a lot of the reporting on Syrian antiquities is wrong. Recently she has said several times (most recently here) that she doubts that "Syrian antiquities are coming to UK" adding "the bigger picture is I am getting media calls about this today". Professor Gill, fresh from a further visit to London dealers with a BBC reporter responds succinctly ('Hypothetical commentary on Syrian antiquities?' Looting matters,Thursday, February 26, 2015) 
Can we ask if this is a 'hunch' from Clydeside? Or has Dr Yates been round various London galleries to look? What is the basis of her 'authoritative' claim?
What do the folk who work in the BM's PAS think about any of this? Are they following this debate?
