“This remarkable antiquity is the first from Michael Steinhardt’s $70 million collection of 180 looted and stolen antiquities to be repatriated to its country of origin,” said District Attorney Bragg.
"Today, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, and senior staff members met to discuss issues of mutual concern. The discussion was open, candid and productive. The meeting was to share ideas and examine policy differences that could be clarified and harmonized toward a common vision that acknowledges the need for criminal justice reform and alternatives to incarceration. It was agreed that police and prosecutors would weigh the individual facts and circumstances of each case with a view toward justice and work together to keep New Yorkers safe. These collaborative discussions will continue."
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg talks about his first month in office and where the office will focus its prosecutions and responds to the new NYPD commissioner's concerns.
"We share Commissioner Sewell's call for frank and productive discussions to reach common ground on our shared mission to deliver safety and justice for all and look forward to the opportunity to clear up some misunderstandings."

“I have lived my entire life in Harlem and have seen all sides of the criminal legal system both professionally and personally,” said DA Bragg. “I had a gun pointed at me three by police officers, had a family member live with me after he was released from incarceration, and posted bail for a loved one. And I served as a prosecutor holding accountable corrupt politicians and those who financed large scale drug-trafficking and, just months ago, walked my family through a crime scene on our doorstep."
