Shelby White: Waiting for the Press Release

Just over one week ago Shelby White handed over nine antiquities from her collection to the Italian authorities: a tenth will follow in due course. Only three items have been identified and as yet there is no press release (which I presume will appear on the website of the Italian Ministero per i Beni Culturali).

It appears that the New York Times published the story before White was ready for the news to be made public. But why the wait? What is there now to hide?

And please could information about the sources (i.e. the dealers) be included in the release to assist with transparency?
