Egypt’s supply ministry said on Sunday that a cargo of 45,000 tonnes of spoiled Russian wheat that was seized by the authorities last week belongs to a private sector company.

Security forces in the northern city of Alexandria seized the cargo on July 1, which was infested with worms and insects and had been released from port months ago, state daily newspaper Al-Akhbar reported at the time.

“The shipment does not belong to the ministry, but belongs to one of the private sector companies,” the ministry said in a statement.
