Stolen Art Watch, Serbian Political Protest at Heart of Swiss Art Heist !!

Switzerland (AP) - Two Impressionist paintings stolen in one of Europe's largest art thefts have been recovered in an abandoned car, Swiss police said Tuesday.

The pictures, by Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, were among four paintings worth 180 million Swiss francs (US$163 million; ¤112 million) that were stolen from a private museum in a Feb. 10 armed robbery.

Art Hostage comments:

Swiss Police have not mentioned the ransom demand, not mentioned the Serbian protest at Kosovo independence, and also, not mentioned FBI Icon Robert Wittman is still on the ground in Zurich.

Mrs Wittman is livid with the thieves as she thought Bob had recovered all four paintings.

Bob has just recieved a text from Mrs Wittman stating that

"Your salad is in the Oven"

Art Hostage advises that the demands be restricted to a statement being released into the media about Serbian/Russian disquiet concerning the Kosovo declaration of independence, and how that will be a benchmark for other separatist movements.

Then the final two Swiss paintings, the Degas and especailly the Cezanne can be recovered in similar fashion, a Catholic church confession box will be safest.

Any notion that serious money will exchange hands is pure folly and will inevitably lead to arrests and convictions.

Ask yourself what would Arkan do in this situation ?

Take the media statement and move on !!

The Headline is waiting:
"Arkan Tigers Take Kosovo Protest Headline for Degas and Cezanne in defence of Serbia"
