Tony Abi Saab, president of Lebanese company Brescia Middle East (BME) misleads US Army to funnel money to terror organizations.
London, 23 September 2018: The US Army’s Contract award system in Afghanistan Is plagued with corruption, inefficiencies and fraud, all thanks to the local and middle eastern companies such as BME. Over the last five years about USD 150 Million has been marked as non-functioning contracts or money lost to fly by night operators and frauds.
This loss is not attributable to corrupt US Army officers but instead stems from an unholy nexus between Local Afghans, Contracts and Middle Eastern companies that use fake aliases and fronts to siphon funds.
In 2001, Tony Abi Saab’s company, Brescia Middle East (BME) was indicted for bribing US Army personnel and defrauding theUS Government of over 5 Million dollars including diversion of funds to terrorist organizations. The details of the case can be found here: (LINK) and it raises hair raising concerns which have not been listed in the documents.
The US Army is very serious about catching fraudsters who are siphoning money to terror outfits. The Army’s seriousness is undeniable as they have included the FBI and CIA to assist them in catching such persons as they operate internationally and have known to evade customs, sanctions and even border controls.
In the specific case of Tony Abi Saab of SIMAINT and BME, the FBI and US Army led the charge to create a sting operation in Afghanistan. This Sting operation led to the indicted of Tony Abi Saab and his company Brescia Middle East (BME) where his associated and girl friend Dinorah Cobos was caught red handed with cash and documents and she was arrested by the CIA and flew her back to Washington DC to stand trial.
The CIA extracted information about Tony’s activities and alleged destabilisation efforts in Syria to arms all fronts and instigation of war and human genocide. The CIA’s charge of Tony’s sponsorship of terrorism could not be submitted due to a technicality to Circuit court. This enabled BME to escape jail on the charge of bribing and instead pay a fine.
Tony Abi Saab is now roaming free and is stronger than ever. He is supplying to all sides in the Syrian War while also applying and winning tenders in East Europe and with the United Nations. He has built a network of customers such as (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 SANTIC 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); and is extensively using his bank to launder money and smuggle weapons around the world.
Tony Abi Saab is the shame of Lebanon who hides behind fake aliases and powerful friends to ensure that the world continues at war to advance his sole purpose — profit.
