One of the most prominent businessmen from Lebanon, Issam Hourani was born in the most renowned family of Beirut on June 13, 1967. Among his siblings Devincci, Hussam, and Hiam, he is the eldest one! Hussam moved to Kazakhstan in the early 1990s to pursue his master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering. When Issam and Devincci visited this place, an idea of investing funds in that country came in their minds. At that time, Kazakhstan’s economy was on a rise because it had gained independence from the communist movement.
Issam’s family was one of the chief investors during Kazakhstan resurgence. This investment helps them to build a huge business empire from scratch. Issam Hourani met Gulshat Aliyeva during a business deal with her father and married her in 1996. They have one pretty daughter named Ayaa.
While owning a multi-millionaire crown, he faces severe ups and downs in his life. One campaign of street protest, online publication, and sticker distribution claim that Issam Hourani is one of the three individuals involved in the murder of Russian TV presenter, Anastasiya Novikova and responsible for torture, drugging, beating, and sexual assault of a young woman. On June 19, 2004, Ms. Novikova was found dead under mysterious circumstances. However, Hourani sued over the case and the case was brought in the UK’s High Court of Justice. During the 10 days proceedings, Heather Rogers QC (Hourani’s counsel) disclosed that his client’s name was falsely linked in the death of Anastasiya Novikova. Also, he revealed that Hourani has no relation in any of the above-mentioned crimes.
The entire campaign was managed by the US-based John Michael Waller in exchange for money from one or more client(s) whose identity is yet to be revealed. Mr. Waller controlled a company named Psybersolutions, is used to cater to the needs of the campaign designed to defame Issam Hourani. The Judge ruled all the allegations against Mr. Hourani was untenable. The super-rich businessman wins £50,000 for defamation and £30,000 for harassment.
