Legal investigations

We would like to point out that all the research carried out by Thierry Jamin and the Inkarri group is systematically the subject of a project led by a Peruvian archaeologist and presented to the competent authorities: ministry of culture, ministry of the environment, etc.

The investigations carried out by the Inkarri Institute respect the “General Law of the Cultural Heritage of the Nation”, Ley N˚ 28296, del 21 de julio de 2004.

On the other hand, the archaeological research campaigns of the Inkarri group, in the footsteps of Paititi, are carried out with the approval of the Peruvian authorities, in accordance with the “Regulation of Archaeological Interventions”, approved by Ministerial Resolution N° 162-2019- MC, dated April 22, 2019 (See the Resolución Ministerial).

Each research campaign is the subject of an official project presented to the Ministry of Culture which, after a qualification study, approves it by a Directorial or Vice-Ministerial Resolution.

At the end of each campaign, the Inkarri Institute submits a “Final Report” to the competent authorities, as well as all the archaeological material possibly taken on site. This report is then the subject of an in-depth study, and finally, of a new resolution approving the said document.

The archaeological sites discovered by the team from the Inkarri Institute have been officially registered with the Ministry of Culture. The archaeological material handed over to the authorities was the subject of individual technical sheets, including an appropriate codification for each object, in strict compliance with current procedures.

We would like all the research currently being carried out in Peru on the traces of the lost city of the Incas to respect this same protocol. We regret that this is not the case…
