Stealing a painting that is worth hundred of millions of dollars is not a big deal , so what is the big deal for his excellency !!??
Is not Farouk Hosni so called artist and a painter !!?? Should not he be the first one to understand the value of this painting by Van Gogh !??
Shalaan is facing criminal charges and seems to be the next scapegoat despite he is not alone responsible
Back to Hosni , well today his sister in law Farouk Abdel Salam has been reported to the general attorney. Abdel Salam got too many scandals in the ministry , of course not so surprisingly.
FYI there are speculations that Hosni would leave the ministry at last in the next ministerial reshuffle expected next October , there are three names we should pay attention too in the coming weeks : Mohamed Salmawy , Mohamed El-Sawy and Ibrahim El-Malam , the last two are popular among intellectuals and public in general plus they enjoy good relations with the businessmen class. Yes El-Malam is the publisher of Haikel's books and Al Shorouk daily newspaper but it would be good in the coming period to win or rather to tame the Egyptian intelligentsia in a way or another by choosing more popular and respected figure in the place of Hosni.
You know I think it will be Salmawy after all because the other two names can achieve something good regardless of what we think about them in the ministry of culture.
Anyhow there is a big chance we find Hosni who regrets accepting the ministry in his place so he can continue wasting our treasures !!
