Lausanne = Loose Security

The statue of Lady Justice is seen without a sword in her right hand on July 1, 2013

For the third time in four years, the sword of the statue of Lady Justice,
which overlooks the fountain Palud facing the Town Hall of Lausanne,
has disappeared...

The statue...armed with a sword and a balance is a copy of an original, made in 1535.

The thieves had stolen for the first time in 2009 the steel sword made by a local blacksmith.
A copy in aluminum was later stolen in 2011, and another copy in recent days...
