Post PAK delays:Jamaat has flushed accounts

New Delhi: Even before Pakistan can walk the talk on terror, a report published in the Wall Street Journal claims that the UN-banned outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa an alleged front of terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba has already transferred huge monies out of most of its public bank accounts.

An Pakistan finance ministry official told the Journal on conditions of anonymity, that the Jamaat has moved thousands, maybe even millions of dollars in recent days.

Though the Pakistan government has ordered that all assets and bank accounts of the Jamaat be frozen, an account in the Lahore branch of Bank Al-falah Ltd remains open for supporters to deposit donations.

Pakistan is yet to formally ban the organization said to be behind the November 26 attacks in Mumbai that killed 217 people.

An unnamed senior official of the Interior Ministry said Pakistan had not banned the organisation, but being a signatory to the UN charter, the government was under obligation to implement its decisions and take action against the Jamaat
