Tunisia has recently recovered from Great Britain an important archaeological museum piece dating back to the Roman era, which had been stolen in October 1998 from the Sfax museum and smuggled abroad. The piece in question is a white-marble statue representing a woman's head. In a coordinated effort between the ministries of Culture, Interior and Foreign Affairs, Tunisian authorities acted quickly to address the matter alerting the International Criminal Police Organization “INTERPOL” and providing it with the information and documents relating to the theft. As soon as they learned that the stolen piece was exhibited for sale in a gallery in London, Tunisian authorities contacted British officials to recover the piece. They received the support of British authorities, particularly the Foreign office and Scotland Yard.
