Al-Ab Al-Ruhy (The Godfather) by Charl Fouad El-Masry, Cairo: Nahdet Masr Publishing, 2012.
Charl Fouad El-Masry continues the series of interviews with world-renowned and controversial characters, revealing the lesser known secrets of their lives.
This time, El-Masry delves into the life of Youssef Nada, the political representative of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood. Despite enormous CIA efforts, no link was ever made between Nada and terrorism funding. The Brotherhood billionaire has been acquitted of all crimes and received full pardon in 2012 from Egypt's President Morsi - who was fielded as the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party presidential candidate.
The interview offers a broader perspective on Nada, now 81 years old, who is originally an engineer and one of the cornerstones of the Brotherhood's economic empire.
