Stolen Art Watch, Scapegoat Solly Stung over Stolen Art


'HOT ART' DEALER INDICTED

By KATI CORNELL

February 15, 2008 -- The feds have finally nailed a globetrotting "fence" who acquired millions of dollars in stolen art and antiques from heists in Paris 10 years ago, then tried to peddle the loot in Manhattan, authorities said.

Solly Sinay was picked up by French authorities on a New York warrant on Jan. 30 and is facing extradition to the United States federal prosecutors said yesterday with the unsealing of a six-count indictment.

The feds have charged Sinay, 54, of Tel Aviv, with trying to sell off stolen goods from three brazen burglaries that netted more than $5 million in art and antiques from two Paris shops and a private home.

Art Hostage comments:
Solly is the fall guy and in the fullness of time the truth will come out to show Solly is nothing more than a Scapegoat.
