OCBC – Stolen art recovery
OCBC – uses LTU’s technology to manage the database called “TREIMA” which contains images of art objects stolen in France. Traffic in stolen art objects is one of the largest criminal activities in the world, ranking just after traffic in illegal drugs. More than 60 000 objects are stolen every year in Europe. France created in 1975 a structure to fight this criminal activity: the “Office Central de lutte contre le trafic des Biens Culturels” named O.C.B.C, which centralizes, analyzes and shares information on a national and international level.
