Iran, Turkey, and Venezuela's Super Facilitator: Who Is Slex Saab?
On June 12, Alex Nain Saab Morán, a Colombian businessman of Lebanese descent, was arrested at Amílcar Cabral International airport in Cape Verde. This was a huge blow to the Maduro regimes illicit networks, as Saab is a key facilitator, involved in alleged corrupt dealings and money laundering in Venezuela since 2004. His arrest was made after years of investigations on behalf of the U.S. and Colombia to uncover a myriad of shell companies that Saab; his business partner, Alvaro Pulido Vargas; and family members set up. Considered a fugitive in Colombia, in October 2018, Colombian prosecutors arrested and charged two of Saabs associates with money-laundering through an import-export business in Baranquilla, then officially charged Saab with money-laundering the following year. In July 2019, the U.S. Justice Department indicted Alex Saab, as well as Pulido Vargas, on seven counts of money laundering, concurrently as Treasurys OFAC sanctioned Saab and Pulido Vargas for looting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Venezuelan people. Detained in Cape Verde, Alex Saab is in the process of possibly being extradited to the United States. The Maduro regime and Saabs lawyer, unsuccessfully, attempted to free Saab, arguing for habeas corpus and presenting his diplomatic credentials. Saabs importance to the Maduro regime goes beyond his trade-based money-laundering mechanisms. He is a financial and logistical architect or super facilitator for Venezuelas strategic ties to the Middle East.

Many people follow Alex blog - I never knew he had ties to the current regime. The screws continue to tighten on Maduro
From the Miami Herald:
“The Cape Verde government has approved the extradition to the United States of Colombian businessman Alex Saab, who faces money-laundering charges in Miami federal court, although the alleged business partner of Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro can still appeal the decision, his lawyer said Tuesday.”
Saabs importance to the Maduro regime goes beyond his trade-based money-laundering mechanisms. He is a financial and logistical architect or super facilitator for Venezuelas strategic ties to the Middle East.
