The Ethiopian government is requiring the compensation of a sacrosanct protest that is fixed inside a sacrificial table in London's Westminster Abbey.

The question, known as a tabot, is a tablet that emblematically speaks to the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments. Each Ethiopian church houses a secured tabot, which is viewed as consecrated and should be seen just by the minister. The tablets, which are made of wood or stone, are accepted to be engraved with a cross and the name of a holy person.

Westminster Abbey's tabot was plundered at the skirmish of Maqdala (once in the past Magdala) in 1868, when British troops assaulted the powers of the Ethiopian head Tewodros. The tabot was procured by Captain George Arbuthnot of the Royal Artillery.

Albeit Anglican holy places and basilicas have a set up framework for deaccessioning furniture, Westminster Abbey is a Royal Peculiar, which puts it specifically under the ruler's locale. The deaccessioning method is something of a hazy area, yet restoring the tabot may require the gift of The Queen. She might not have an individual view regarding the matter, but rather her child and beneficiary, Prince Charles, has grown close connections with eastern Orthodox holy places and could well be thoughtful.
