Pakistan president signs ordinance to rein in outfits banned by UN


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain has signed an ordinance aimed at reining in individuals and organisations like the LeT, al-Qaida and Taliban which have been banned by the UNSC, a media report said on Monday.

The ordinance amends a section of the Anti-Terrorism Act, enabling the authorities to take action against the UNSC-proscribed individuals and terror outfits, like sealing their offices and freezing their bank accounts, The Express Tribune reported. Sources in National Counter Terrorism Authority confirmed the new move.

The UNSC sanctions list includes al-Qaida, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Jamaatud-Dawa (JuD), Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and others
