The Washington Post has written about the criticism Hawass has faced in the New Egypt for his ties to the Old Egypt of the Mubarak regime. See http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/egypt-archaeologist-zahi-hawass-faces-criticisms-about-his-job-ties-to-mubarak/2011/04/15/AF9Hvf1D_story.html
The story notes that a Court has sentenced Hawass to jail for failure to follow its orders. Despite all the criticism from Egyptians, the article indicates that Western archaeologists largely remain supportive-- or at least silent-- about Hawass' problems.
In other news, Hawass also recently revealed that he now has his own clothing line with the proceeds going to charity. See http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/19/arts/design/egyptian-antiquities-official-defends-fashion-line.html.
Charity or not, the Hawass story is quickly becoming more of a soap opera than anything else.
