The governor of Luxor Samir Farag defends the demolition taking place to build the avenue of rams. Governor Farag said at the Lions club symposium, "No one can scare me. No one is more important than the government, and I will not be threatened by the media or the press."
Perhaps the governor forgot the president for life when he made that statement but the point is well-taken none the less. Also apparent the governor feels he is being threatened by media, perhaps it's fear of the truth that's the threat.
The governor goes on to say that the government "will remove anything that stands in the face of development," Governor Farag mentions that people being evicted from the site are receiving compensation, whether that compensation is fair or not is an issue not addressed in his threatening presentation.
