Arms dealers illegally supply weapons to terrorists for profit

Borders of war-torn countries are porous which causes weapons smuggling

Until and unless the fraud contractors and arms dealers are put behind the bars, the international military troops deployed in the war-zones will keep losing on the battlefield.

Powerful and rich people like Tony Abi Saab are causing trouble to the Army by supplying guns and weaponry to the terrorist groups. It’s been over 17 years since the United States has begun its war on terrorism in Afghanistan still, they aren't completely successful in the task. Moreover, every corrupt people and criminal is making profits out of wars.

Arms dealers are defrauding the defense and taking advantage of the conflicts to earn profits from the rebel groups. Tony Abi Saab is doing business deals with terrorist organizations. His company Brescia Middle East deals in arms and weapons with the foreign military and illegally with terrorists.

BME launders the crime money obtained by Tony through his business deals with the terrorist groups. Later on, the hard cash is smuggled and distributed amongst the crime partners, that is, the shell companies spread all over Europe and the Middle East. This way Tony prevents his illegal business from abruption. Brixia, one of Tony's shell companies, produced spare parts for weapons and sold it in Syria's black market. According to the reports in doguerogulu.com, Tony supplied pistols and guns to Daesh through Turkey.

The arms dealer has also swindled $5 million in contract frauds through his fake companies K5 Global and Bennet Fouch.

Tony was indicted for fraud, bribery, running ghost companies, and selling guns to rebel groups. But, it is unfortunate that he was freed because of a technicality in the circuit court. He still does illegal business in the Middle East and Europe without fearing legal authorities.
