It seems that procuring fossils have become latest trends. Recent addition to the list is America where a federal judge from New York has singed warrant to get back a 70-million-year-old dinosaur skeleton.
The warrant has been issued on the basis that Mongolian Government has told that skeleton of the Tyrannosaurus bataar belongs to them and was being founded by them some 68 years ago. Luis Martinez, who is a spokesman for U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, informed that they are expecting the skeleton by the end of this week.
The Mongolian Government requested the judge to issue orders, so that their property is not taken to other place. "From a legal standpoint, the U. S. government's lawsuit shifts the burden of proof from Mongolia to Heritage and others who might make a claim to its ownership”, said Preet Bharara, who is Manhattan’s U. S. Attorney.
Heritage officials have also confirmed that they will make sure that the government gets back the skeleton. Jim Halperin, who is the co-chairman of Heritage Auctions, said that they spent a lot of money to polish this skeleton. Therefore, they expect that fair decision is being done and both the parties get benefitted and remain contended with the outcome.
