I can see why,

"He then recovers the shiny gold bars, which are believed to have been looted by Iraqi soldiers during the invasion of Kuwait in 1990."


Those gold bars are most likely Kuwaiti state property and it would be easy to validate that by comparing the serial numbers on the bars to Kuwaiti governmental records.

A tiny fraction of the total value, I'm sure.

Those gold bars are most likely Kuwaiti state property and it would be easy to validate that by comparing the serial numbers on the bars to Kuwaiti governmental records.



Treasure Act 1996 gives the local coroner rights to "Objects substantially made from gold or silver but are less than 300 years old, that have been deliberately hidden with the intention of recovery and whose owners or heirs are unknown."

Usually it's intended for archaeological stuff, but this definition works here if it's felt the Kuwaiti govt doesn't have a claim.
