Why UNSC allows terrorist Hafiz Saeed to access bank account? | Matrubhoomi

Updated 26 Sep 2019 06:48 PM

The UN Security Council (UNSC) has allowed Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief and the 2008 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed access to his bank account, which had been frozen because of the world body's sanctions, after Pakistan made a plea on his behalf.

Saeed's assets had been frozen after the UNSC sanctioned him under Resolution 1267 for links with the Al Qaeda and Islamic State (IS).

In a decision taken on August 15, the UN Sanctions Committee said it had received a letter from Pakistan seeking permission to allow Saeed "certain expenditure" from his frozen bank account.

The Chair said "no objection" had been received from any member till 3 p.m. on that day and hence Pakistan's request was approved.
