The United Nations has freed up ‘expense’ money for several men designated as terrorists at the request of the Pakistani government, including one with a $10 million US bounty on his head. Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday the money will cover basic expenses and doesn’t involve any restoration or unfreezing of bank accounts. “These exemptions are being enforced and monitored as per law,” the statement said.Pakistan put in the request last year in keeping with UN regulations, which allows for money to be released – but carefully monitored – from frozen bank accounts belonging to individuals declared terrorists by the world body. Pakistani officials didn’t reveal how many designated terrorists were on the list sent to the UN or how much money was released or the nature of the expenses for which the outlawed individuals required the money.However, a diplomatic source confirmed Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, was on the list. The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media about the details of the request or the UN decision. An anti-terrorist court convicted Hafiz Saeed in February and sentenced him to 5 1/2 years in jail on convictions of financing terrorism and having links with terrorists. He has appealed his conviction and sentence. Instead of going to jail, however, Saeed was put under house arrest at his home in Lahore.Saeed’s home is in a residential neighborhood protected by steel barriers that stretch across the streets leading to his home, which is guarded by uniformed police. Although Saeed’s group has been linked to attacks outside the region, its activities have mostly been directed at India and the dispute in the Himalayan region of Kashmir.
