Provenance and title ownership issues again (Real Bodies).

Good question, answer please
Did ‘Real Bodies’ in UK exhibition belong to Chinese prisoners? (‘Real Bodies’ in UK anatomical exhibition could be executed Chinese prisoners, says doctor  Guardian : Thursday, 09 August, 2018,)
The president of Imagine Exhibitions, Tom Zaller, called the suspicions about the bodies “fake news”. “I refuse to entertain these ridiculous accusations without a shred of evidence to back these baseless claims,” he said.
Provenance and title ownership issues again. Like antiquities, exhibitors putting on show of such sensitive material self-evidently should have full documentation of licit origins of each exhibit. Not only of the last source (some medical facility that had a surfeit of bodies of young males), but precise origins (including verifiable documentation of cause of death). Where is it? Without it the exhibition should never have been put together, let alone exhibited.
