Till now, the president of Sima Salazar international, Raymond Azar is convicted for conspiracy, bribing the US officials and inflated invoices in construction contracts but the US investigation team doubts the real mastermind of the multimillion dollars fraud is still roaming free.
The Army jotted the fragmented connection between two fraud companies—Sima Salazar Group and Brescia Middle East (BME). Sima Salazar, located in Afghanistan was sub-contracting under Tony’s shell construction companies-- K5 Global and Bennet Fouch. An international arms and weapons dealing company, BME was operating K5 Global and Bennet Fouch illegally.
Tony’s shell arms company Tactica Ltd had a regular interaction through telephones and product deliveries with the Sima Salazar Group, a construction company. Tactica Ltd was purchasing arms commercially and selling them in the black market to terrorist groups in Syria. Moreover, which kinds of products were being exchanged between a construction company and an arms dealing company?
BME is a global arms and weapons dealer company which sells military equipment and weapons to the international Army deployed in war-torn States but he equally helps terrorists working against the military. In short, he is serving both sides for a profit.
In 2009, Raymond was convicted and imprisoned for ten years. Afterward, more of illegal businesses of his partners came into light and the link between BME and Sima Salazar became clear. Raymond Azar and Tony set-up a number of ghost companies which disappeared since conducted the fraud. Those companies were K5 Global and Bennet-Fouch.
Raymond also paid a penalty of $13 million, whereas, Tony Abi Saab is yet to be punished for defrauding the US Army of 5 million dollars and supplying arms and weapons to terrorist organizations in war-zones for the profit.
