Zolotow still fighting to get his diamonds back

Long time pro, Steve Zolotow has been fighting since 2000 to gain possession of diamonds that were confiscated by customs for being undeclared on a trip from from Toronto back to his home in New York. 

Because Zolotow didn’t appeal the case in time, Canadian officials got the rights to sell them, but they only received $250,000 for the sale.

According to Toronto Sun, Zolotow has been trying to get the diamonds back since then, or at least receive compensation from authorities, without any luck.

That's weird, i guess you have to be sure to cross your T's and dot your I's... Customs doesn't mess around.
