UN imposes asset freeze on arms dealers :: ABC News

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - A U.N. Security Council committee called on all governments on Thursday to freeze the assets and travel of two individuals linked to international gunrunner Victor Bout over past arms sales to Liberia.

The council's committee on Liberia sanctions added Syrian-born accountant Richard Ammar Chichakli of Texas and Ukrainian-born businessman Valeriy Naydo, with an address in the United Arab Emirates, to its list of people whose assets and travel are to be frozen around the world.

The panel also called for an asset freeze on 30 business entities with ties to either Bout, Chichakli or Naydo, including Air Bas, Air Cess, CET Aviation Enterprise, Centrafrican Airlines, San Air General Trading FZE and Trans Aviation Global Group Inc.
Let's google "Victor Bout" and Sharjah and see what comes up. See also this google search.
