A French court Tuesday sentenced a Lebanese businessman in absentia to eight years in prison over a high-end prostitution ring operating at the Cannes Film Festival that had ties to a slain son of Moammar Gadhafi. The judge also slapped a 50,000 euro ($64,000) fine on Elie Nahas, a Lebanese who claimed to run a modeling agency employing young women recruited in South America, France and eastern Europe. [Link]
The prostitution ring was first discovered in 2007 and according to investigators, dozens of prostitutes had been recruited from the U.S., France, Lebanon and Venezuela, and the ranks included a Lebanese beauty queen and several successful American models.

2000 Sandra Rizk
2001 Christina Sawaya
2003 Marie-José Hnein

Update: Answer is Lamitta Frangieh, who was crowned 1st Runner-up at Miss Lebanon 2004 but participated in the Miss World 2005 pageant. Read more [Here]. Thank you Rami!
On a last note, The French authorities might want to consider hiring Liam Neeson to capture Elie.
Lamitta Frangieh http://www.lorientlejour.com/category/%C3%80+La+Une/article/784169/France_%3A_Huit_ans_de_prison_requis_contre_le_Libanais_Elie_Nahas_pour_proxenetisme.html
Liam Neeson. Why?
You think Lamita and the other models didn’t’ know what they are doing and what exactly for?
Elie Nahas should have run a “match making” business. His fees would have then been legit.
His wife is Sabine Abdel Nour, Cyrine’s sister and who was Miss Internet.
BTW, Cyrine is also not that clean and I know some ppl from the Gulf who had her phone number for special escort when visiting Lebanon.
Razor: it’s nice to provide info, it really is. However someone who throws false (or at least not backed up) info/evidence is characterized as a jackass who has nothing to do but talk bullshit about people who he doesn’t know.
Who told you about Sabine Nahas or Cyrine Abdel Nour? Are you sure about the info you spoke about Cyrine? Well here’s some info from me, and it’s about the “people you know from the Gulf”…those people are probably the kind of Lebanese trash that goes there to look for an opportunity to make money by scams, and at night they head over to some “club” and grab some thai or chinese chick to spend the night with…and probably fantasize that the woman in his bed is Cyrine…and when they come (after 5 seconds from starting) they realiz who the woman is…so they just shoot it back with some info.
I dare you, in fact I double dare you to put this evidence to the public. She might be a hoe, but I’m willing to go for my chances…larger chances are that you’re just an ass.
One more thing: if you think you’re that smart, Razor, at least look at some other logical arguments, perhaps like the one of PPink Floyd… That’s how a rational person thinks.
