Jerusalem Court Acquits Antiquities Collector of Forgeries After 7-Year Trial

17 Mar

“‘My conclusion,’ Judge Farkash told the court, ‘is that the prosecution failed to prove beyond all reasonable doubt what was stated in the indictment: that the ossuary is a forgery and that Golan or someone acting on his behalf forged it. This is not to say that the inscription on the ossuary is true and authentic and was written 2,000 years ago,’ he said. ‘This matter is expected to continue to be researched in the archaeological and scientific forum and the future will tell.'” (via Holy Cross Monastery) http://chronicle.com/article/Jerusalem-Court-Acquits/131164/
