However, the latest ATC verdict of Friday has brushed aside the Lahore court’s verdict, ordering immediate arrest of both leaders from the premises of the court and sending them straight to jail.
The cases were registered in Lahore, Gujranwala and Multan during July 2019, alleging illegal collection of funds for terror financing through assets and properties made and held in the names of trusts and non-profit organisations.
The names being used to shelter and hide terror financing funds under charity were Al-Anfaal Trust, Dawat-ul-Irshad Trust, Maaz-bin-Iqbal Educational Trust, Al Hamd Trust and Al Madina Foundation Trust.
Leaders of JuD booked for terror financing include Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Abdul Rehman Makki, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Ameer Hamza, Muhammad Yahya Aziz, Muhammad Naeem Sheikh, Mohsin Bilal, Abdul Raqeeb, Dr Ahmed Daud, Dr Muhammad Ayub, Abdullah Ubaid, Muhammad Ali, Abdul Ghaffar and others.
