Allegedly they have found him and he is in the UK in intensive care - however I heard that they had found him last night- something strange

Can't believe it is possible, but maybe delaying confirmation till after World Cup tonight? (Deal done?)

I was definitely not expecting any bad news to be announced before the Dubai World Cup festivities were over. Was thinking that he would probably remain "missing" until Sunday afternoon.

I find all this idle speculation DISGUSTING. Someone COULD BE DEAD.

The rumour mill is working into overtime. Apparently he's been found and 'talking to his brothers', as you do, and then also the much sadder 'he is no more'. Do not know why they are withholding info. It is sad though as he is a great man and much respected in his role at ADIA.

Take it this is not the same company that EM referred to yesterday



Totally agree. Of a team of 10, we officially went down to 1 today. I survived but I suspect that is because I'm an accountant and am needed to shut the rest of it down.

Where do I work I hear you ask? Contractor? Real Estate? Manufacturing? No... One of the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth funds...
