Museum Director Criticises Opponents of Germany's New Heritage Law

"Martin Roth, the German art historian and director of London's Victoria and Albert Museum, has defended the German government's highly controversial planned cultural protection legislation amendment. In an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel Roth said that it was crucial that Germany conforms to the standard of international law by incorporating the changes into its laws. “In Germany one makes it too easy for dishonest or uninformed dealers, because in truth, so far nothing is regulated, anyone can sell anything," he criticized. 
German antiquities dealers maintain their silence.
