25 Libyan Citizens Honoured for Contributing Towards Preservation of World Heritage Site

Dr Al Amin El Habib, Libya’s Minister of Culture and chairperson of the Local Council of Sabratha, and UNESCO’s Representative in Libya, have been invited by the Local Council of Sabratha to the presentation ceremony of awards to 25 former combatants and civil society members.

These citizens will be rewarded for successfully contributing in seizing the smugglers, and returning to the UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site of Sabratha the stolen artefacts, among which the two statues heads, that had been looted in March 2013.

In its work to prevent and fight against the illicit trafficking in cultural property, UNESCO seeks to involve civil society, reflecting the realisation that efforts to stop such trafficking can only succeed if they are carried out at the national level with the commitment of civil society at large.

The Local Council of Sabratha is a partner of the training programme aimed at Libyan police and border customs staff, which UNESCO, the Ministry of Culture and the Department of Antiquities will be organising in September 2013 in Sabratha, as part of a broader capacity building and training programme funded by the Government of Italy.
