UN should focus on the rise of the illegal arms trade in the Middle East

: Tony Abi Saab playing big with his corrupt business all over the world
 

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. This is the motto of terror groups who keep spreading violence in the Middle East and in return US army is trying to finish the roots of terror. But it is turning out blank as the war on terror is continuously rising and people like Tony Abi Saab spreading violence in return of a lot of hard cash.

Tony Abi Saab, a white collared businessman for the international Arms trade market of Lebanon, but in reality, he is fraudster for the USA. Beside his front company Brescia Middle East (BME) that legally supplies guns and weapons to the Army, he runs several shell companies spread all over Europe and Afghanistan and uses them for his illegal businesses to receive orders and deliver weapons to the terrorist organizations active in Syria and Iran.

He carefully implemented his illicit work through the chain of shell companies but was soon caught when the US Army doubted the irregular funds of his company BME.

Three expert teams, CIA, FBI and the US Army orchestrated a sting operation against Tony and his company and found him guilty. The investigation team held him and flew him for a trail in the US court for these charges: Fraud of $5 million on a US Army contract, supplying weapons to the rebel groups in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran and earning contracts by forging company’s identity.

Tony escaped the jail term by citing human rights violation against the US Army in the civil court and got away with only a small amount of money as a fine. He also managed to get away without letting the evidence showed up in the court. All the efforts of the investigation team were wasted. They meet with little success, that is, the ban of Tony’s main company BME to do business in the United States.

Illicit arms traders like Tony are just groups and networks that operate in ways that can be understood and handled by powerful organizations like the UN and NATO.
