The illegal trafficking of cultural heritage is an important source of financing for terrorism, rapporteur Stefan Schennach has said. The report by the Austrian MP welcomes the new Council of Europe Convention on Offences relating to Cultural Property and makes a number of practical recommendations to states, including that they should set up a central national authority to deal with this issue; engage in international co-operation between source, transit and final destination countries; and exchange information with each other.
