From the designation:
Abbas Loutfe Fawaz is a Hizballah Foreign Relations Department official who serves as Hizballah’s leader in Senegal, playing a key role in Hizballah’s activities and recruiting members for Hizballah.
Following the 2006 Israeli-Hizballah conflict, Fawaz established a group of Hizballah followers and, taking advantage of increased Lebanese nationalism generated by the conflict, became more active in promoting Hizballah and fundraising for the group.
Fawaz used supermarkets (n.f.i.), which he owned and operated, in Dakar, Senegal, to raise funds for Hizballah and attract supporters.
Fawaz hosted a visit to Dakar, Senegal, of Hizballah members from Lebanon to promote Hizballah’s interests, garner support among the Lebanese expatriates, and solicit financial donations.
Fawaz also led a group of Hizballah members and supporters in secret meetings in order to devise ways to increase Hizballah’s fundraising efforts and to promote Hizballah’s popularity among Lebanese nationals in Dakar.
One Abbas Fawaz heads the Iranian-Lebanese Council of Businessmen.
