An alleged associate of the world’s most notorious arms trafficker has been arrested in Australia after he tried to apply for a job as an armed guard with Victoria Police.
Megan Neil – (AAP) -January 11, 2013 – Authorities are investigating whether Richard Ammar Chichakli entered Australia under an assumed identity.
The 53-year-old was arrested in Melbourne on Thursday for allegedly conspiring with a Russian arms dealer known as the “merchant of death” to buy two planes to ship weapons to conflict zones across the world.
He was identified after he applied to become a protective services officer (PSO) – armed guards who patrol railway stations, courts and Parliament House.
The man was found to be a person of interest through a routine background check and was not offered a job, a Victoria Police spokesman told AAP.
