The Sindh government has seized 65 properties belonging to 4 banned organisations as part of measures being taken to stop terror financing

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah met with a US congressional delegation whom he told that 59 properties of Jamaatud Dawa, Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation and Jaish-i-Mohammad and 6 properties of Tehreek-i-Taliban Afghanistan had been frozen under the UNSC Act 1948 and UNSC Freezing & Seizure Order 2019.

He also added that 47 terror financing-related cases had been registered and were under investigation of the Counter-Terrorism Department of Sindh police.

In relevance to anti-money laundering action being taken by the Sindh government, he said he had constituted a taskforce to deal with the matter under the home secretary.

This taskforce has directed stakeholders like Pakistani Customs, Airport Security Force and Federal Investigation Agency for establishment of Currency Detection Units at major airports to intercept and prevent currency smuggling.

The accompanying delegation seemed to recognize the efforts being made by the government to control terror financing.
