Constraints on Recovering Stolen Regalia from UK Museums By Asantehene

Published:

Dr. Ivor Agyemang-Duah, a Ghanaian historian and advisor to Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, highlighted the challenges faced by the Manhyia Palace in permanently recovering stolen regalia from the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Strict British laws governing the two museums prohibit them from permanently returning the looted regalia to the Manhyia Palace.

However, agreements have been reached to loan the stolen regalia to the Manhyia Palace Museum for six years. The regalia will be part of an exhibition commemorating historical events and celebrating the Silver Jubilee of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Dr. Agyemang-Duah emphasized the significance of the returned artifacts for tourism, anticipating increased visitation to the Manhyia Palace Museum and economic benefits.

He also mentioned the connection between the artifacts and the gold production industry, noting that the regalia would inspire those involved in the craft of gold production.

The Manhyia Palace Museum is expected to undergo temporary closure for renovation to accommodate the display of the returned regalia and other acquisitions.
