People stand outside the court building where the trial of suspects in the theft of seven paintings from a Dutch museum last year, is taking place in Bucharest October 22, 2013. The suspected ringleader in the theft Radu Dogaru has said he had inside help, his lawyer said on Tuesday. Dogaru, his mother Olga, and four other Romanians appeared in the Bucharest court charged with stealing artworks worth tens of millions of euros from Rotterdam's Kunsthal museum in October 2012 in one of the art world's most dramatic heists of the past few years. At a previous trial hearing last month, Dogaru said he would disclose the whereabouts of the paintings - some of which were believed to have been destroyed by fire - if his trial was moved to the Netherlands. The paintings, including a Picasso, a Monet, a Matisse, a Gauguin, a Lucien Freud and a Meyer de Haan, were stolen when the thieves broke into the building, somehow evading the sophisticated alarm system.
