ICE HSI helps Egyptian law enforcement agencies counter antiquities trafficking


    PreviousNextEgyptian archaeological sites, storerooms and other locations are under serious threats of pillage, theft and illicit trafficking. That's why U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) joined forces with the U.S. Embassy to Egypt to present a four day workshop titled "Countering Antiquities Trafficking at Egypt's Ports and Borders."

The workshop was designed to help improve Egypt's capacity to prevent the illegal export of cultural property through more effective implementation of export controls and law enforcement resources. The conference also aimed to increase dialogue and cooperation between Egyptian law enforcement agencies and provide a basis for a continued working relationship between ICE's attaché office in Cairo and Egyptian law enforcement
