Will US and Egyptian Authorities Aggressively Investigate Alleged Corruption in the Egyptian Antiquities Ministry?

We now know that the US Government will aggressively pursue those who allegedly smuggle ancient artifacts of Egyptian origin.

But will the Egyptian Government be as aggressive in rooting out alleged corruption in Egypt's antiquities ministry?

And will the US Government seriously investigate whether the millions in US taxpayer dollars invested on Egyptian archaeology was well spent or frittered away through fraud, waste and abuse?

Don't count on it.
