(PTI) Lahore, Ta. 23
Pakistan’s anti-terrorism court has prosecuted three of Hafiz Saeed’s associates. The court sentenced three people, including a relative of Hafiz, to jail in the terror funding case.
Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Court has jailed three members of the Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed. It also includes a close relative of Hafiz Saeed. The court also sentenced Yahya Mujahid, a spokesman for the Jamaat-ud-Dawa militant group of Hafiz, to six months in prison. At the same time, the total sentence of Mujahid has been increased to 20 years and the sentence of Mukki, a relative of Hafiz, has also been increased to 3 years.
This punishment is being linked with the meeting of the Financial Action Task Force. The annual meeting of the FATF will take place this year and there is a possibility that Pakistan will be blacklisted. Earlier in 2013, Pakistan was immediately blacklisted, but this time the nefarious is likely to be blacklisted, as Pakistan has not taken action against terrorist organizations. To avoid this, Pakistan has started pretending that all these puppet-like terrorists are being prosecuted, three of which have already been prosecuted.
