Support for the Greek Government's rejection of litigation in favour of diplomacy

The British Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles (BCRPM) notes the decision of the Greek Government to reject litigation in favour of a diplomatic approach to the resolution of the dispute over the Parthenon Marbles, respects this decision and offers continued full support to whatever initiatives it takes.

And a link to the paper that Andrew Dismore delivered at the London 2012 Colloquy which we organised in conjunction with the Internationalthe International Organising Committee - Australia - for the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles and the American Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures. Andrew Dismore is a former Labour MP and a Labour London Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden.

Andrew supports the reunification of the Parthenon sculptures but explained why he did not feel that a legal case would be successful.
