Egypt’s second richest man, telecom billionaire Naguib Sawiris, has denied rumours that he fled the country. In fact, he just told CNN he supports the uprising and is buying the depressed stock market.
“We’re moving to the better. Democracy is good. Businessmen are still here and this is a sign of stability,” he said (via Al Masry Al Youm), adding: “We will do our best to ensure the movement is not hijacked by radicals.”
Sawiris says his family — which includes the country’s three other billionaires — have also not fled the country.
