Four Romans were convicted of theft in 2013, but the picture was not found again.

One of the four judges, Olga Dogaru, insisted investigators burned the picture in her fireplace.

Later, however, she withdrew this statement and on Saturday the police received interesting advice on the stolen Picasso painting.

A Picasso-signed picture investigated the situation surrounding a picture worth about 800,000 euros on Saturday night in Tulcea County, and a member of the opposition to organized crime issued a statement announcing that it was validating the picture.

The statement said two Dutch citizens handed the painting to the Dutch embassy in Bucharest.
