I'd Like To Make A Deposit ... To My Hizbollah Account

Canadian Bank Named as  Financial Agent for Hizbollah.

BEIRUT: The U.S. Treasury Department has designated two Lebanese money exchange firms as a ‘primary money laundering concern’ alleging the groups may be laundering millions of dollars of narcotics profits and funneling the money to Hezbollah, according to a press release issued Tuesday.
The Treasury Department claims that Lebanese narcotics kingpin Ayman Joumaa operating in South America moved the proceeds of his drug trade through Kassem Rmeiti & Co. For Exchange and Halawi Exchange Co. companies in Lebanon after the U.S. government added the Lebanese Canadian bank to a blacklist for its operations with Hezbollah.  More Here.
