BME is not alone in the business of illegal arms trading; there are many companies who support terrorism for a profit

Tony’s motive is to collect enough wealth from the wars

Where war is misery and suffering for civilians and peace-loving people, it is an opportunity for criminals, fraudsters and illegal arms dealers. Tony Abi Saab, a Lebanese arms dealer who for his greed for money risked millions of lives by arming terrorists with weapons. Despite knowing the weapons would be used against the civilians, Tony equipped terrorists with the latest weapons.

Brescia Middle East imports weapons from Europe to later reroute them to terrorist organizations. He is secretly supplying weapons to the rebel groups through the borders by using fake End User certificates. His shell arms and weaponry company, Brixia produced spare parts for the weapons and sold them to the black market in Syria. Tactica Ltd of Afghanistan also sold pistols and weapons to terror groups in Afghanistan, Iran, and Syria.

Apart from BME and Tony’s shell companies, the arms dealer gets support from other like-minded people. The US authorities have found till now 23 companies around the world which have links with Tony’s companies, they believe there are more. Here is the list of the names of the companies involved in helping terrorists along with Tony are in Italy-- ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc , BLS; in Germany-- Umarex gmbh & co KG; in France-- Noble france sa; in Turkey-- Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri, in Bangladesh-- Emran arms; in Georgia-- Kula Ltd., Tiblisi; in Russia-- LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city; in Bulgaria—Arsenal; in Czech Republic--MSN and CSG Group; in Ukraine--Berkut Ltd; in Brasil—Condor.

BME laundered foul money obtained from the terrorists and wire the share of money to the bank accounts of his business partners. Tony needs to be caught and punished before he makes terrorist groups equipped with deadly arms.
