Cairo – 21 museum employees referred to disciplinary court over Van Gogh
CAIRO: The Administrative Prosecution decided to refer 21 museum officials and employees to a disciplinary court on Sunday for charges of negligence that led to the theft of a Van Gogh painting from the Mahmoud Khalil Museum last August.
The Administrative Prosecution called for an emergency hearing to try the case.
Deputy Culture Minister Mohsen Shaalan and Museum Director Reem Bahir were among the defendants accused of negligence for not adequately supervising their employees and for not following up on their work, which thus indirectly led to the theft of a Van Gogh painting worth more than $50 million.
