A Syrian-born US citizen who has been an employee/ associate of Viktor Bout for about a decade. The UN identified Chichakli as Viktor Bout’s Chief Financial Manager and, therefore, as one who acts at Bout’s direction. His own resume details his senior positions with several Bout-controlled companies. A certified public accountant and certified fraud examiner with more than 12 years of experience, plays a significant role in assisting Bout in setting up and managing a number of his key firms and moving money (both for acquisition of assets and reparation of profits). In media interviews, reportedly has held himself out as spokesperson for Viktor Bout and his network. Chichakli is an officer of San Air General Trading. Payments for many of the weapons that went to Liberia through Victor Bout’s network in 2000 and 2001 were directed to San Air’s bank accounts. As such, Chichakli is associated with an entity providing financial or military support to armed rebel groups in Liberia or in countries in the region.

Citizenship: Ukrainian

c/o CET Aviation, P.O. Box 932-20C, Ajman, UAE

AC251295, KC024178 (Ukrainian)

Has been described as “Bout’s number two” man in South Africa by another Bout associate. A former pilot for Bout and one of the directors of Air Pass (Pietersburg Aviation Services and Systems), a Bout front company. Also listed in a commercial database of UAE firms as CET Aviation’s Chief Executive Officer. CET is a holding company Bout organized to incorporate two of his firms: Centrafrican Airlines and San Air General Trading. As noted above, Naydo is the CEO of CET, the holding company for Centrafrican Airlines. Centrafrican’s role in the Liberian arms trade was uncovered when UN investigators found film footage of Liberian rebels handling 9 Strela surface-to-air missiles. These missiles appear to match an illegal shipment of weapons organized by Sanjivan Ruprah and delivered to Liberia in May 2000 by an Ilyushin IL-76 belonging to Centrafrican Airlines. Centrafrican was also involved in other arms shipments, including the attempted sale of two refurbished Mi-24 attack helicopters to Liberia.
