Fraud arms dealers making illegal money out of wars

Corruption is helping terrorists to survive and inflict pain in human lives
 

The corrupt arms dealer Tony Abi Saab is obtaining illegal money from wars by trading in weapons with terrorist organizations. Militants are purchasing weapons from illegal arms dealers to fuel violence and conflicts in war-torn countries.

Governments of these countries are ineffective and almost impotent in stopping the criminal activities and terror attacks by the rebel groups. Illegal weapons are bypassing the security borders of war-inflicted countries, hard cash is smuggled and laundered in the bank accounts of Lebanon, and terrorists are enjoying their prime days without bothering about the scarcity of weapons and arms in years to come. Even after seven years, terrorism from Syria and Iran couldn’t be rooted out completely, the US military persons are still fighting there and losing their lives. Despite all inhuman activities in Syria, Iran, Yemen, and Afghanistan by the terrorists, there are some businessmen like Tony who are helping them and arming them with hi-tech weapons just for the fake of profits.

Tony Abi Saab, a Lebanese arms dealer and a man behind inflated invoices of contracts, ghost companies and shipment of weapons and guns to terrorists were caught by the US intelligence team in 2011 to stand a trial in the US court. His company Brescia Middle East operated his shell companies-- Middle East are K5 Global, Bennet-Fouch, G2 Armory, Brixia, Tactica-Ltd, and SIMAINT from Lebanon. BME was charged for grievous crimes like money laundering, fraud, supplying weapons to the terrorist organization for the profit and running several ghost companies in the Middle East and Europe.

Tony was released from the court after a brief trial because he pleaded human rights violation, torture, and error in collecting evidence against the CIA, FBI, and the US Army.
