LONDON, February 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of a number of baseless rumours and allegations circulating in the press in recent days, Mr. Ahmed Ezz, Chairman of ezzsteel and Member of the Egyptian People's Assembly, today released the following statement:
"During this momentous time in Egypt, there are many allegations and counter allegations offered on every side, often with little or no evidence or factual basis to support them. I wholly refute all of the allegations made by some parts of the media in recent days and in particular the groundless allegations of corruption and embezzlement of public funds."
"If required to respond to any charges that may be brought against me, I have complete faith in the Egyptian judicial authorities and that a fair and equitable legal process would prove my innocence beyond doubt. In this unprecedented time, people should not jump to conclusions or look for scapegoats."
"I have always been, and remain, committed to Egypt, my lifelong home. The last three weeks have been remarkable and I support the current transitional political process which aims to achieve greater democratic reform."
