The Attorney General’s Office announced on Sunday that two persons have been brought for trial on charges of trafficking in antiquities.

The Office said in a statement that the prosecutor within the jurisdiction of Al-Bayda Court of Appeal circuit investigated "the legality of the possession of two persons of valuable pieces of art that can be classified as movable antiquity, so he inferred that the movable antiquities were listed under illegal dealing for the motive of illegal trade."

The Attorney General’s Office pointed out that efforts are continuing to combat trafficking in cultural property, and countering infringement on archaeological structures.
