In a recent interview, Program on Arab Reform and Democracy Associate Director Hesham Sallam weighed in on the recent court ruling that acquitted former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his security aides of the charge of killing protesters during the January 25 uprising in 2011. Tracing recent political developments in the past four years, Sallam sees Egypt's government regressing back to a deeper authoritatrian regime. The interview aired on the show "Shay wa Nana" on WPFW in Washington, D.C., and was featured on Jadilyya, an independent ezine of which Sallam is a co-editor.
