[Egyptian] Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs Zahi Hawass has been sentenced to one year in jail on Sunday for refusing to fulfill a court ruling over a land dispute.
The Egyptian criminal court also said Hawass must be relieved of his governmental duties and ordered him to pay a LE1000 penalty.
Hawass failed to adhere to a ruling in favour of his opponent over a land dispute when he was in charge of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA).
Another source reports that he was sentenced to a year of hard labor.
One thought on “Zahi Hawass Sentenced to Jail”
The real problem is, of course, that this is not the real reason why he ought to have been sentenced. Concentrating on English TV-serieus, he failed to educate the Egyptians.
