SoHo Properties CEO: Media Reports of Park51 Move a “Falsehood”

In the wake of media reports that Terry Jones, the Gainesville, Florida pastor who was going to burn a Qur’an on Saturday, had agreed to not proceed with his plan because the promoters of the Park51 project had agreed to move it to a different location, Sharif El-Gamal, Chairman and CEO of SoHo Properties, which owns the site, today issued this statement to RD:

It is untrue that the community center known as Park51 in lower Manhattan is being moved. The project will proceed as planned. What is being reported in the media today is a falsehood.
