US Organization Accused of Archaeological Bribery

US Justice Department reportedly to investigate National Geographic as Non-Profit for criminal bribery:
Beginning in 2001 and continuing for a decade, National Geographic paid the archaeologist between $80,000 and $200,000 a year for his expertise. The payments came at a time when the popularity of mummies and pharaohs was helping transform the 125-year-old explorer society into a juggernaut with multiple glossies, a publishing house and a television channel. But they also came as Hawass was still employed by the Egyptian government to oversee the country’s priceless relics.So did this money give Nat Geo unfair access to a lucrative market for all things ancient Egypt?
