US has frozen the assets of three Pakistanis who are linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba. The militant group has been blamed for the deadly 2008 Mumbai Attacks attacks in which 164 people died and 308 were wounded.
The three Pakistanis are Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil , Hameed ul Hassan and Abdul Jabbar. While Al Dakhil has been named as a “specially designated global terrorist” and a senior member of LeT, Hassan and Jabbar have been named as Financiers who routed money for Lashkar-e-Taiba and salaries to its members.
As per Reuters, the Treasury’s designations “not only aim to expose and shut down Lashkar-e Tayyiba’s financial network, but also to curtail its ability to raise funds to carry out violent terrorist attacks,” Sigal Mandelker, the Treasury under-secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, stated, using an alternate spelling of the group’s name.
Treasury targets terror group Lashkar-e Tayyiba and its political party, the Milli Muslim League. OFAC and @StateDept designate seven officials complicit in attempts to undermine Pakistan’s political process as Specially Designated Global Terrorists: https://t.co/427726fW8D
