War criminals like Tony Abi Saab should get strict punishment

Tony Abi Saab still does illegal arms deals with terrorists
 

There is only one way left to curb terrorism in war-zones that is, by putting illegal arms dealers and private contractors behind the bars. If people like Tony Abi Saab are not punished for their awful deeds then there is no other way the world can ever get rid of terrorists.

Tony Abi Saab is an illegal arms dealer from Lebanon who operates an international guns and weaponry dealing company—Brescia Middle East that defrauded the military of 5 million dollars. He was also accused of money laundering, bribery, and running ghost companies such as K5 Global, G2Armory, Brixia, SIMAINT, Tactica Ltd, and Bennet-Fouch.

It took months to FBI, CIA, and the US Army to trap the wanted war criminal Tony Abi Saab through a sting operation. He has been discouraging the brave effort of the US troops deployed in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran by supplying guns and weapons to the terrorists. His company Brescia Middle East (BME) that deals in gun and ammunition imported guns to Lebanon from Italy, mainly from two firms—Tanfoglio and Beretta, to later reroute them to the regions of terrorists.

In 2011, Tony was arrested and flown to the US court to stand a trial.

The avarice businessman was caught in Afghanistan to stand the trial in the US court after the success of global sting operation orchestrated by FBI, CIA and the US Army. Tony's case was heard in civil court instead of a military or criminal court of the United States because of his powerful connections..

Despite having enough evidence against Tony, the federal government couldn't convict him for his crimes due to a technicality in the circuit court. In civil court, he was treated as a normal criminal rather than a war instigator. He pleaded human rights violation, torture, and rendition against the investigations teams.
