Cambodia’s missing artefacts: Team to call on Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore

The delegation is eyeing museums in Asia as part of a quest to inspect more than 2,000 lost treasures they say belong to Cambodia.

A Cambodian team on a global quest to hunt down and retrieve scores of what it says are lost national artefacts is turning its attention closer to home.

Singapore, Japan, Korea and Taiwan are slated as future stops after a recently concluded mission to the United Kingdom to examine more than 100 Cambodian antiquities, some of which the delegation believes to be stolen.

Members of the team – which includes government officials, archaeologists, historians and conservators – told CNA on Tuesday (Oct 18) that they expect to open discussions with Singapore’s Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) soon but did not specify a date.
