US: MAN’S CAREER AS INTERNATIONAL ARMS DEALER MAY BE OVER AS HE IS ARRESTED

On 20th May, the Fresno Bee carried an article saying that a former Fresno man who went from being an aspiring artist to an international arms dealer has been charged with illegally brokering the sale of military-grade arms, money laundering and conspiracy.  Ara Dolarian, 58, of Dolarian Capital Inc, who lives in Sophia, Bulgaria, was visiting when US federal authorities arrested him.  It says that a BuzzFeed article in 2014 shined the spotlight on Dolarian’s lucrative international arms dealing businesses that sold everything from Soviet T-72 tanks to rocket launchers.  Dolarian is accused of trying to broker an illegal arms deal in 2013 and 2014 with the Nigerian government.
