Authorities in Botswana are making initiatives to fight illegal import and export of cultural objects.

The Department of National Museum and Monuments has announced dates for the fifth workshop on “Fight against Illegal Import or Export of Cultural Objects” slated for February 18 and 19, 2020.

“The fifth workshop targets officials of the border post who were not covered in the previous seminars to sensitize them on these legal instruments and enable them to identify illegally imported cultural objects as perpetrators attempt to take them across borders,” said spokesperson of Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism Alice Mmolawa in a statement.

Mmolawa said the ministry has been holding a series of workshops to sensitize the nation on illegal import and export of cultural objects.

Last year, the department of National Museum and Monuments held four workshops on the implementation of 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting, Preventing and Fight against the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Cultural Property. Enditem
