Lebanon businessman corrupted the roots of Afghanistan with contractual fraud

Tony Abi Saab is the reason behind the corruption in the vulnerable region

Tony Abi Saab from Lebanon took the government contracts, undertook partial work on the contract and cheated to get paid in full. But the US Agencies found out about his fraud during a sting operation against him.

Tony has masked himself as a genuine legal arms trader in Lebanon whereas, in reality, he is supplying terrorism in conflict countries by supplying weapons to the terror organizations. Tony’s core business was involved in supplying illegal weapons and other military accessories. When the American agencies were made aware and drew the connection, an elaborate sting operation was planned and it was successful. This major sting operation led to the arrest of Tony Abi Saab.

Tony had extremist groups as his clients and to outstretch the arms trade business he began to supply weapons to them. He builds a network of shell companies around the world such as in Italy: ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc , BLS — Germany: Umarex gmbh & co KG — France: Noble france sa  — Turkey: Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri — Bangladesh: Emran arms, — East Europe and Russia: Kula Ltd., Tiblisi - Georgia, LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city, Russia, Arsenal, Bulgaria, MSN and CSG Group, Czech Republic, Berkut Ltd, Ukraine — Brasil: Condor to initiate illegal trade of supplying guns to the warmongers.

Tony was using his Europe based ghost companies for supplying weapons to the terrorists. These weapons make a stop at Ukraine where they are reinforced and sent to Iraq. An empty container is sent to Bangladesh, where the container easily passes through customs due to lack of checkpoints at the shipping ports.

The weapons are taken at low rates as they are meant for governmental sourcing and are being sold at a good profit to the terrorist groups active in torn streets of Iran, Syria, and Afghanistan.
