HAFIZ SAEED’S CONVICTION, A VITAL STEP IN HOLDING THE ACCOUNTABILITY OF LeT: US

Commending the 26/11 Mumbai Attack Mastermind Hafiz Saeed's conviction, the United States called it an important step towards holding the accountability of Lashkar-a-Taiba (LeT).


"The prosecution of Hafiz Saeed and his associate represents a significant step forward, both in holding LeT accountable for its crimes and in upholding Pakistan's international commitments to counter terrorist financing,” said Alice G Wells, Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia.


Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan said that it is in the interest of the future of his country that it will not allow non-state actors to operate from its soil.


Wells' tweet came after Saeed, an UN-designated terrorist, was sentenced to five years and a half by a court in Pakistan.


It is suspected that Saeed-led Jamatud Dawa is the front organization for the LeT which is responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.


Saeed has been designated as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US Treasury Department, and since 2012, the US has been offering a USD 10 million reward for information that will bring Saeed to justice.
