UN yet to receive appeal for review of JUD ban
December 17, 2008 03:57 IST
The JUD had said it will approach the UN to remove restrictions imposed on it after a Security Council panel declared it a front for the Lashker-e-Toiba terror group.
The request for review, the spokesperson said, could be sent directly to the Council. However, if received by the Secretary-General, he would forward it to the Council.
Acceding to India's demand, the UN Security Council had placed sanctions on the Jamaat, its head Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, LeT operational chief Zakir-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and two of their financiers Haji Muhammad Ashraf and Zaki-ur-Bahaziq. Lakhvi has been termed as the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks by Indian investigators.
Asked whether the UN will investigate the charges levelled against JUD, the UN spokesperson said the world body does not investigate such incidents and it is done by local authorities, who are already engaged in it.
