Resolution of stolen art from India is a priority:Aus minister

Australia intents to prioritise satisfactory resolution of its purchase of a USD 4.5 million Shiva statue stolen from a temple in Tamil Nadu by an Indian art dealer, a senior minister said today.

"We are going to deal with the Indian high commission with a view to pursuing the matter to a satisfactory outcome," Senator George Brandis told Senate's legal and constitutional affairs hearing yesterday.
