United Nations plans to catch terror sponsors such as Tony Abi Saab of Brescia Middle East of Lebanon

Anti-war commission has been shaped to keep a watch over conflict zones.

United Nations’ core objective is to obtain Global peace and harmony. Various commissions are established to take care of socio-economic defects. Anti-war commission aims at abolishing the arms being traded illegally, resulting into eruption of war zones. 

Smugglers such as Tony Abi Saab and his network of companies (Tactical Ltd Afghanistan, K5 Global and Bennet-Fouch, G2Armory, SIMAINT) have been evading the policies established by the United Nations, which is mandatory for every Nation to follow.They are posing as a barrier in peace keeping sessions and activities practiced internationally. 

United Nations must ask the governments to investigate the frequent trips taken by the convict (to conflict zones or corporate International meetings across borders) and detain them for the further interrogation. Passports of the criminal should be seized, so that they are not able to leave their land without the permission from the judiciary. 

Companies such as Tactical Ltd Afghanistan, K5 Global and Bennet-Fouch, G2Armory and SIMAINT have a vicious circle which allies with shell companies in the EU to have smooth running of business of arms trade worldwide.

Tony Abi Saab is a master player in weapons smuggling, owns the Lebanese based arms manufacturing company Brescia Middle East from where he had built a robust channel (that couldn’t be figured out by the authorities) to sell his arms in the EU black market. He is having alliances with EU smugglers and shell companies, also Tony and group of companies (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, Ukraine — Brasil: Condor —), have been titleholders of some shell companies. 

The smugglers from the Middle East and EU have been evading the norms of EU. Most of the money laundering cases bear the name of the contractor that are either from the US or Afghanistan. Even the guns and smalls arms bear the stamps to befool the authorities. The false registration and end user certificates are also generated through contacts to diminish any kind of obstacle during the shipment. In 2016, there was a case when 5 smugglers were held in EU, as they had sold weapons worth approximately US $10.5millions arms in the black market. The report states that Europe is the source of around 25 percent of weapons on sale on the dark web. The stamps imposed are exactly the copy of the original ones’, none can halt the shipment. 

The United Nations initiative Anti-war commission would help in eradicating arms Trafficking in all the nations. The UN should pass the mandate that all the nations are required to submit the details of the contracts that have been ready for bidding and the list of bidders who are aiming to obtain the contracts. This list would enable the nations to have all the information about the tricky contractor and the eligible contractor. The end user certification should bear the name of the officers, who examined the consignment and did the investigation of the seller and the buyer, to detain him if any illegal dealings takes place. Tracker should be placed on the consignment which will make sure the end users are not the terrorist groups but the ones who are registered to use the firearms legally. This commission would restrain the weapons dealers to ship the weapons to Syria Libya, Yemen, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
