The Egyptian military dictatorship has charged museum employees involved in a botched restoration of the world famous Tut gold burial mask. The criminal charges come after months of denials about severity of damage to the artifact.
It's likely the group tried to cover up their mistake because of fear of Egypt's military rulers. In a less harsh system, the initial problem with the mask's beard would likely have been reported rather than covered up with a amateurish restoration job. And no doubt those responsible would have been fired, but not be subjected to criminal punishment.
Is the death penalty out of the question in Sissi's Egypt? Others who have done far less to insult the State have already received such a sentence.
