Zahi Hawass and the Museum Gift Shop

The new Museum gift shop that was looted during the recent revolution in Egypt has been a subject of ongoing controversy. In official reports from the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and the Egypt Cultural Heritage Organisation (ECHO) it was stated by the former director of the museum of Egyptian Antiquities (2004-2010) Mrs Wafaa el-Saddik, that the looting of the new gift shop was an inside job, carried out by the museum’s own security and Egyptian Police dressed in plain clothes.

More evidence of internal corruption has come to light in the past few weeks concerning the gift shop and Dr Zahi Hawass’ involvement. Simply put, the opening of the Museum’s new gift shop on the 15th of December last year is in violation of a court verdict.

What follows is a detailed description of events surrounding the establishment of the museum’s new gift shop based on accounts by Egyptian publisher, photographer, writer and printer, Mr Farid Atiya who was directly involved.

Background
Until December 2010, tourists visiting the Cairo Museum came in and out by the main entrance, on the south side of the building. Beside the entrance was a bookstore that opened many years ago. Every three years, the concession of this bookstore was publicly auctioned and given to the applicant who presented the best offering, in price and in merchandise. The last two auctions were won by Farid Atiya.

According to Farid Atiya, Dr Zahi Hawass was annoyed by Atiya’s successful applications as Hawass wanted the concession of the book shop to be given to the American University in Cairo Press (AUC Press). In 2006 Mark Linz, the director of the AUC Press, told Atiya about the plans to build the new shop and that the AUC Press would be given the lease of the new shop. When Farid Atiya won the auction again in 2007 Dr Hawass swore that Atiya would not stay long.

Under the pretext of a museum embellishment, Dr Hawass had the idea of building a new gift shop on the western side of the museum. Visitors would enter the museum via the original entrance and would exit the museum through the new shop on the western side, thereby circumventing the old shop that was being leased to Atiya.

The new shop was built and it’s concession had to be auctioned to comply with the law.

Surprised eso es prevaricación ¿no? porque concede beneficios a alguien sin que haya competencia igual para todos.
