Summary A six-month investigation of Barry Munitz, the Getty CEO, showed that he had used the trust's tax-exempt resources for himself and his friends, while cutting jobs and the Getty's budget. Getty officials also were found-out for buying antiquities from dealers they suspected of selling looted art, over the past 20 years. They also withheld incriminating evidence when Italian authorities investigated this, all the while promising "full cooperation."
