Ex-Minister's Troubles Not Over

Al-Masry Al-Youm is reporting that in Egypt, the Public Prosecution refused a request by Zahi Hawass, former head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, to lift a travel ban placed on him more than a year and a half ago, First District Attorney Mostafa al-Husseiny said [...] Hawass was charged with violations relating to organizing exhibitions abroad, and with granting the management of the Egyptian Museum gift shop to the Egyptian Company for Sound and Light, for which he worked as a consultant. The foreign exhibitions closed at the beginning of the month and should have now returned and the museum shop stands starkly empty. Have they still got something on Hawass, are they afraid that he has something on them, or is are they just punishing him by making it impossible to utilise his fame abroad to make a living?
