From Used Cars to Hezbollah: The FBI investigation into Dallas Roadster continues
The raids on Dallas Roadster were conducted by both the FBI and the DEA. The FBI investigations into money laundering for terrorist groups continues. With the information garnered from the seizing of computers and banking records from Dallas Roadster, the FBI was able to continue to trace the money to various nefarious terrorist groups. These groups have all been outlawed in the U.S.A.
In an article in the NY Times (click here for original article in the NYT) :
“…Eventually an American team dispatched to look into Mr. Joumaa’s activities uncovered the used-car operation. Cars bought in United States were sold in Africa, with cash proceeds flown into Beirut and deposited into three money-exchange houses, one owned by Mr. Joumaa’s family and another down the street from his hotel. The exchanges then deposited the money, the ostensible proceeds of a booming auto trade, into the Lebanese Canadian Bank, so named because it was once a subsidiary of the Royal Bank of Canada Middle East.”
It is of note that two of Bahman Hafez Amini’s relatives in Canada work for Royal Bank. These two are Fariba Maleki-Raei and her daughter Maryam Torabipour (who coincidentally was charged with Accessory to Murder in Canada).
Dallas Roadster, which is owned by Bahman “Ben” Hafez Amini, is also aligned with Canadian Used Car “wholesaler” Newlane Remarketing Group Inc. Newlane Remarketing Group Inc. is the Canadian side of imports from Dallas Roadster. Newlane Remarketing Group Inc. is owned by Bahman Hafez Amini’s nephew- Reza “Ray” Behroozian.
