Share evidence against Saeed with us: Pak to US
Islamabad: Pakistan on Monday countered US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton`s remarks that it had not done enough against the 2008 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed saying any evidence against him should be shared with Islamabad so that it can be examined by the courts.
"Our position on Hafiz Saeed is clear. We have independent and active courts. If anyone has proof against him, they should share it with us so that the courts can examine it," Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan said.
Speaking in Kolkata, Clinton had said she had authorised a 10-million dollar reward for information leading to the capture and prosecution of Saeed, who now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawah.
Saeed, who is the founder of banned terror group LeT has mocked the bounty, saying he was living openly in Lahore.
"We`re well aware that there has not yet been the steps taken by the Pakistani government to do what both India and the US have repeatedly requested them (to) do...And we`re going to keep pushing that point. So it`s a way of raising the visibility and pointing out to those who are associated with (Saeed) that there is a cost for that," Clinton said.
Saeed was placed under house arrest after the UN Security Council declared the JuD a front for the LeT in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai attacks but he was freed within six months on the orders of the Lahore High Court.
