Naples, July 10 - Paris Saint-Germain star Ezequiel
Lavezzi is under investigation for attempting to smuggle an
historic statuette out of Italy on a private plane, police said
Wednesday.
However, it was not stolen from the UNESCO heritage site of
Pompeii, the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of
Naples and Pompeii said, contradicting media reports.
It is not possible to determine the origins of the
discovery or just where the relic was found, the superintendent
said in a statement.
But staff there say they are not aware of any such a
statuette being stolen from Pompeii.
Customs officers making a routine check in May 2012 seized
the find from Lavezzi's luggage as he was preparing to leave
Naples airport.
The Argentina striker, who played for Napoli for five
years, told police the ancient Roman artifact was "a gift from
an acquaintance", prosecutors said.
