IS HEZBOLLAH SMUGGLING WEAPONS TO BRAZIL?

Customs Today on 29th June reported that Hezbollah is being investigated in Brazil for the illegal trade of firearms, according to the influential O Globo newspaper.  According to the report, federal investigators in Brazil have been probing possible ties between Lebanon and criminal gangs in Brazil for the past 8 years.  Hezbollah-linked groups allegedly began smuggling arms into Brazil back in 2006, according to federal documents obtained by O Globo, which suggest that Lebanon’s lucrative drug trade played a key role in funding the illegal trade.
