  • Description

    Belgian multi-millionaire industrialist Baron Edouard-Jean Empain, kidnapped earlier this year and held in chains for two months, says he plans resuming active direction of his huge industrial empire. After his release last March 26 the 40-year-old Baron temporarily handed over the running of his vast conglomerate of 150 companies. For the past five months he has been resting in the United States to recover from his ordeal, during which part of a finger was cut off to press his kidnappers' ransom demands. At a news conference in Paris on Thursday (7 September) Baron Empain told reporters what he had thought about during his capture.
