Pak has enough ‘material’ to keep JuD chief Hafiz Saeed under custodyMay 31st, 2009 - 12:27 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, May 31 (ANI): Pakistan Attorney General Sardar Latif Khosa has said that the government has enough ‘material’, other than a UN resolution, to keep the Jamaat-ud- Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and his colleague Colonel (retired) Nazir Ahmad under custody.
Khosa told the Lahore High Court (LHC), which is hearing Saeed’s detention case, that the custody of the two JuD leaders was protective and preventive in nature, and not the detention for which the petitioners had moved the habeas corpus petition.
He said that a review board comprising of three LHC judges had extended the detention of both Saeed and Ahmad, and that even the government had no right to overlook the UN resolution in this regard.
Khosa also claimed that the JuD was directly involved in the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, The Daily Times reports.
Earlier, the LHC preserved its verdict in the detention case saying it would be made public later.
Secret documents related to Saeed were tabled before the court by the federal and provincial government in a closed door session.
Khosa said it was done because the documents were concerned with national security. (ANI)
