After formal approval from the United Nations sanctions committee, Pakistan today restored bank account of JuD chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed. Bank accounts of Hafiz Saeed and JuD leaders restored after formal approval from United Nations sanctions committee. Last year in October, Pakistan had requested to UNSC's anti-terror committee to allow Saeed to get 'pocket money'. In May, Pakistan set free all terror operatives held in captivity in order to de-congest prisons to stem the COVID-19 outbreak

New Delhi: Pakistan has restored the bank accounts of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed after formal approval from the Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council.

The other terrorists who got their bank accounts restored include Abdul Salam Bhuttavi, Haji M Ashraf, Yahya Mujahid and Zafar Iqbal, reported the Pakistani media.

Last month, an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan had indicted Saeed and his close aides in a terror-financing case.

Hafiz Saeed Is A United Nations-Designated Terrorist

23 FIRs have been registered against 70-year-old Saeed and his accomplices on the charges of terror financing in different cities of the province by Pakistan’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab police.

Saeed is a United Nations designated terrorist and the US has placed a USD 10 million bounty on his head.

“All of them are UNSC’s enlisted terrorists though and currently facing sentences ranging 1 to 5 years in Lahore jail for terror financing cases filed against them by the Punjab Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD),” The News said.
