Haykal controversy

Muhammad Hasanayn Haykal caused a big stir in his last appearance on Aljazeera.   He implied that Anwar Sadat insisted on making coffee for Nasser in his last days and that he may have poisoned him.  Sadat's daughter  is now suing Haykal.  (Suing? In Egypt? Like there is rule of law in that family farm?).   I believe the possibility personally but Haykal cant get off easily: if you had doubts, why did you not express them earlier?  If you had doubts, why did you collaborate with Sadat and help him against this Nasserist enemies (known as "centers of power")?
