For global terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s ‘living expenses’, Pak goes to UNSC with a request
[HindustanTimes] Saeed, chief of UN-designated terrorist organization Jammat--ud-Dawa was banned in December 2008 by the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
Security Council after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed.


Pakistain has approached the UN security council committee with a request to let Lashkar-e-Taiba
...the Army of the Pure, an Ahl-e-Hadith terror organization founded by Hafiz Saeed. LeT masquerades behind the Jamaat-ud-Dawa facade within Pakistain and periodically blows things up and kills people in India. Despite the fact that it is banned, always an interesting concept in Pakistain, the organization remains an blatant tool and perhaps an arm of the ISI...
emir Hafiz Saeed
...founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and its false-mustache offshoot Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The United Nations declared the JuD a terrorist organization in 2008 and Hafiz Saeed a terrorist as its leader. Hafiz, JuD and LeT are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Pak intel apparatus, so that amounted to squat. He is periodically placed under house arrest so it looks like the govt is doing something. Once the heat is off they let him go....
to withdraw money for what Islamabad described as "necessary basic living expenses".

Saeed, chief of UN-designated terrorist organization Jammat--ud-Dawa was banned in December 2008 by the United Nations Security Council after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed. Four years later, the United States had announced a US $ 10 million bounty for his arrest.Hafiz Saeed had tried to get off the UN list earlier this year but the attempt was firmly blocked.

In a request to the UNSC panel overseeing enforcement of sanctions against snuffies such as the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks plotter, Pakistain said one of the bank accounts frozen on UNSC’s orders was one where his pension - Saeed was once a college professor before he made terror his full-time business - was deposited by the Pakistain government.

"His bank account was blocked by the Government of Pakistain under compliance with UNSC resolution 1267, requesting an asset freeze exemption to access frozen funds in the amount of Rs 1.5 lakh (USD 1000) to cover the necessary basic living expenses for himself and his family," the Pakistain request to the UNSC panel said.

Indian officials say Pakistain’s hard push to let the global terrorist access a mere Rs 1.5 lakh from his bank accounts is important for three reasons.

Firstly, it highlights the nexus between Islamabad and jihadists in the country who are backed by the official machinery. Second, it confirms India’s understanding and information about Hafiz Saeed’s clout in the Pak security establishment. And thirdly, people familiar with the development say, it is a "hugely symbolic move" that is seen to support Hafiz Saeed’s claims that he was not the terrorist criminal mastermind that Indian agencies accuse him of but just another ’retired college professor’.
