Israeli billionaire Teddy Sagi denies that he got a warning to leave Cyprus before an attempted assassination of him as part of an alleged Iranian terror plot.

“It only sounded scary from the headlines,” Sagi tells Channel 12 news in a phone interview. “As you saw, this incident wasn’t connected to me.

“I thank the authorities,” he adds, but contradicts the version of events given by security officials.

“I didn’t get any warning to leave the country,” he says, adding that he made the decision to leave Cyprus on his own. “I’m continuing my businesses as usual.”
