26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed to walk free? Pakistan court orders release
23 November, 2017, 00:41
Pakistan's Punjab Judicial Review Board on Wednesday ordered the release of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, who was in house arrest in Lahore since January 31 this year. Judges from LahoreHigh Court rejected the appeal for the extention of his house arrest.
"The government is ordered to release JuD chief Hafiz Saeed if he is not wanted in any other case", the board said.
"The release order only shows that Pakistan provides free space to terrorists to indulge in acts against other countries".
In the recent development, a Pakistani court has announced the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks will be released from the house arrest in Pakistan.
In a video message after his release, Saeed claimed that he was detained because of his associations with the disputed Kashmir region. Authorities arguing against the release of Saeed are of the opinion that it could invite worldwide sanctions on Pakistan.
Stating that the release of Saeed could lead to the imposition of worldwide sanctions on Pakistan, an official of the Punjab Home Department told the review board, "We plead the board not to order the release of Saeed as Pakistan may face global sanctions".
Before the board's decision, a federal finance ministry official appeared before it and submitted "some important evidence" against Saeed to justify his detention.
Last month, the board had allowed a 30-day extension to the detention of Saeed which will expire next week.
Under the law, the government can detain a person for up to three months under different charges but for extension to that detention it needs approval from a judicial review board.
Saeed has denied involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, during which a 10-member LeT team killed 166 people when they targeted two hotels, a Jewish centre and a railway station.
