I am deeply frustrated although somehow I saw this coming.
I had no good feeling during all this time of brooding silence in the Antiquities Ministry.

Hawass and the PM who was responsible for appointing a minister delibarately waisted time and thus put the sites and antiquities at even more risk as there was no one to take co-ordinated action against looting.

IMO this was all a dirty trick. They simply waited until the call for a competent leader would become so loud and archaeologists so desperate that they even would welcome Hawass back.

And just as well as he associated himself with the Mubaraks prior to the revolution he now hails the pioneers of the revolution on his website.

He seems to be able to change faces quickly and without difficulty if it just helps him to stay in power.

Disgusting!

Is he in court because of the affair with the museum gift-shop or because of other charges as well?
And what is it about the forgery?
