Egypt’s corruption watchdog arrested four Supply Ministry officials suspected of taking bribes from suppliers.
Those held include the head of Food Industries Holding Co., a state-run company responsible for importing some food commodities, as well as an adviser to Supply Minister Ali El-Moselhy. The officials are suspected of accepting more than 2 million Egyptian pounds ($111,550) in bribes from major commodity companies to help secure orders and facilitate payments, the state news MENA agency reported.
Separately, an official at Egypt’s customs silos and two employees at a grain import and export company were ordered to be held for another 15 days, a northern Giza court said Tuesday.
