£21 million has been assigned to the Law Enforcement Agency to track down offenders and £2 million for preventative work.  The big problem to overcome in order to get at the online offenders is their anonymity via email addresses while committing these offences.  Encryption is another obstacle to the police as they cannot get into people’s sites.  Lastly, the issue of jurisdiction and slackness comes into play when working with other countries, whose help is needed to bring the offenders to court, and this means time and money.

Brazilians watched in dismay as their 200-year-old National Museum filled with 20 million priceless historical items and artefacts burned to ashes except for 10%.  A home for the Royal Portuguese family in the 1800s, the building housed a 12,000-year-old human fossil known as Louisa, the oldest found in the Americas. It also had Egyptian and Roman treasures as well as immense Brazilian losses

People are sad and angry for the scientific, cultural and historical loss, blame is being placed squarely on the government’s shoulders because of the budget cuts and lack of funds for the National Museum.  There was no fire safety precautions or water hydrants.
