The document, a letter dated Jan 22 sent from MNHD to SODIC, listed several reasons for the decision.
One issue cited in the letter was SODIC's settlement worth 800 million Egyptian pounds ($45 million) paid to Egypt's illicit gains authority relating to a 1,400-acre plot west of Cairo.
Neither SODIC nor MNHD were immediately available for comment outside normal working hours. ($1 = 17.8600 Egyptian pounds)
