Saudi Arabia returns stolen historical documents to Iraq

Saudi Arabia, represented by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), handed over the stolen historical documents to Iraq.

The documents were in the custody of an Arab expatriate in the Kingdom, who possessed them illegally and posted some of them on the Internet.

The documents contain 250 papers dating back to the beginning of 1940 and owned by Iraq’s House of Books and Documents and related to the ruling family in that period.
