In his statements to Ikhwanweb, Brotherhood MP Azab Mustafa accused what he described as "top figures" of involvement in the disappearance of 131 invaluable antiques.
He added that he submitted a query last week to theCulture Minister inn this regard to be discussed next week.
He indicated that such monumental antiques were taken to the US to be presented in an exhibition in return for $600mln; however the pieces never returned to Egypt again since they were taken to Germany then to France.
Azab stated that such monumental pieces are invaluable and can furnish a complete museum.
He said he has got documents and reports issued by the Administrative Control and Central Auditing Organization (CAO) disclosing financial and administrative violations of the government on this issue.A number of 131 antiques disappeared since 2004 which Egypt failed to restore so far
