Tony Abi Saab of SIMAINT and Brescia Middle East was accused in the United States of a major Government fraud that involved supplying weapons in Syria, Iran, and Libya to terror groups. He defrauded the government of millions of dollars, used a fake identity of Sarah Lee to win contracts, conspired, bribed and supplied weapons to terrorists.
In 2011, the US special investigation team caught red-handed the fraudster through a major sting operation. Tony Abi Saab was being monitored and the US found out he has been supplying weapons to the rebel groups who were responsible for killings of thousands of innocents.
Luckily, Tony proved to be very smart and worked the US justice system in his favour to walk away with a minimal penalty. He dragged his case from criminal court to the civil court where he got special benefits that criminals don't have access to. The evidence collected by the American agencies were not valid in the civil court, hence, they couldn't be shown in the court.
Tony Abi Saab is now focused on the EU and is visiting several weapons manufactures in Europe to conduct business. He is bidding on United Nations contracts, spreading his companies around the world including Asia and South America to expand his business reach.
EU border control should monitor the activities and business deals of Tony Abi Saab immediately and ensure that he isn’t planning a repeat of the US Army fraud on EU Soil.
Tony Abi Saab has already established his presence across the European Union by setting up companies in Germany: Umarex gmbh & co KG — France: Noble france sa — Turkey: Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri with partnership with companies in Italy: ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc , BLS, 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. Tony is also planning to open bank accounts in the EU.
People like Tony cause are more damage to the stability of the world than the terrorists themselves. If no arms dealers supply weapon or guns to them then it would become easier to weaken their power and curb terrorism from its root. EU should not permit such individuals to visit EU soil and ensure that their business dealings are under the radar.
