When Tony Abi Saab, a money launderer and a fraudster will be punished?

Terrorists seek help from criminals and illegal arms dealers

Nowadays wars are no more fought in an ethical manner, with many countries having dangerous weapons that can wipe out every entity of the world; the risk of two countries fighting can cause huge loss to the world resource. But, when the situation comes where a country needs security and protection from some orthodox, conventional and narrow-mindset groups than every country should unite and fight against the devil.

The wars have created an opportunity for many illegal businessmen to expand their business and earn in billions. One such deprave trader is Tony Abi Saab of Lebanon, he defrauded 5 millions of the US military in the contracts fraud in Afghanistan, supplied weapons to the rebel groups active in Syria, Iran and Yemen, and laundered millions through his front company Brescia Middle East and wire the amount to the bank accounts of the shell companies and business partners.

His companies are banned in the United States but active and legal in any other parts of the world. Tony’s main company that deals in arms on the international platform, Brescia Middle East, and his fake companies—K5 Global, Brixia, Bennet-Fouch and G2Armory, from doing any business there. Tony has been doing reckless business without bothering about the lives of innocent people living in war-torn countries.

BME launders foul money that is obtained by selling guns and weapons to the rebel groups. It imports weapons to Lebanon from mainly Italian firms—Beretta and Tanfoglio to later reroute to Syria, Iran, or Afghanistan to the terrorist organizations. His company, Brixia produced spare parts for weapons and smuggled them to countries throughout the Middle East for reassembly and sales.

Tony smuggles hard cash, make it trespass through the border of many of Lebanon’s neighboring countries and then deposit the amount in various bank accounts in Lebanon to later wire it to business partners.
