The policy of the BCRPM is that the campaign for the reunification of the sculptures of the Parthenon should emphasise cultural and ethical arguments

The British Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles (BCRPM) has been made aware of reports in the press and social media that it has plans to take the British Museum to trial over the legality of its title to ownership of the so-called Elgin Marbles in its collection.

These reports have no foundation in fact and do not originate from the BCRPM and the BCRPM dissociates itself entirely from them.  The policy of the BCRPM is that the campaign for the reunification of the sculptures of the Parthenon should emphasise cultural and ethical arguments.  Certainly at this time its policy does not encompass litigation.
