Al Masry Al Youm reports that Mubarak Jr. went behind closed doors with a number of cultural figures—they list as attendees as Biblioteca Alexandrina Director Ismail Serag Eddin; National Center for Translation Director (and literary critic) Gaber Asfour; Supreme Council for Culture Secretary-General Emad Abu Ghazi; Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies researcher El-Sayed Yassin; publisher Ibrahim el-Moallem; El-Sawi Cultural Wheel founder Mohamed el-Sawi; and civil society activist Mona Zulfiqar.
The secret meeting was apparently held to discuss an official NDP report on the party’s cultural policy.
No word on why it was held behind closed doors, nor what was actually discussed. (Of course, everyone has seen the news about Gamal Mubarak posters cropping up around Cairo.) Oh, boy.
The irony of that man talking culture. I knew a professor who once taught at his university (where else but AUC, since he can afford it). He said he was an atrocious student. You would not know it though, since no one had the audacity to give him less than an A, lest they find out how the Egyptian government deals with less than submissive professors.
