The next syrian political figure?

The Syrian regime's richest opponent, the business magnate Firas Tlass has pledged his fortune to the "revolution", promising to fund rebel groups, humanitarian aid and an organisation to deal with the chaos after President Assad has gone.

In his first interview with a western newspaper since leaving Syria, the country's biggest industrial tycoon has told the Daily Telegraph of how the ownership of his conglomerate of huge companies is to be given to a panel of leading opposition figures, and the profits used to help to build a democratic society in Syria.
