Online articles and social media posts say Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), has been arrested. The claim is false, confirmed Swiss police, Europol and WEF; Schwab was not detained and in fact spoke at an event in Dubai on the day cited in the erroneous posts.
