The war on terror in the Middle East and Afghanistan has not only been counter productive for some big private companies who don’t want these wars to stop as they are getting millions of profit. One such arms dealer from Lebanon Tony Abi Saab took advantage of the war and supplied weapons to terror groups in the Middle East.
Tony Abi Saab and his company Brescia Middle East from Lebanon are creating chaos with their improper ways of disturbing the peace. He supplies arms and weapons in Africa, Middle East, Afghanistan, and Pakistan to the terror groups.
Tony Abi Saab is a shrewd businessman and has masked himself as a genuine legal arms trader in Lebanon but in reality he is sponsoring terror in vulnerable regions. Tony seized the US government contracts, took the partial work on the contract and bribed, cheated to get paid in full. He made USD $5 million through his fraudulence. For several years it was not possible to find a connection of his crimes till the US Agencies found out terror groups were getting weapons by the Brescia Middle East. Eventually, he was caught in Afghanistan after the major sting operation by FBI and CIA.
When Tony was caught, he took advantage of loopholes in the law and cited human rights abuses against him. He walked free of the legal charges against him after paying a small fine. Thus he is freely conducting his fake businesses in all over the world.
Tony had extremist groups as his clients and to outstretch the arms business he began to supply weapons to them. He set out to build 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 and Ukraine — Brasil: Condor.
