After the hearing, a court official said, “Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki (brother-in-law of Hafiz Saeed), Yahya Mujahid (spokesperson of Jamaat), Zafar Iqbar and Mohammad Ashraf were charged with terror funding in four other cases.”
The suspects were brought to court from Kot Lakhpat Jail under tight security. The officer said that Judge Ijaz Ahmad Batar directed the prosecution to present the witnesses at the next hearing of the case on Thursday.
Let us tell you that last month, ATC Lahore sentenced Zafar Iqbar and Hafiz Abdus Salam to more than 16 years of imprisonment. At the same time, Makki was sentenced to one and a half year imprisonment in another case of terrorist funding.
In February, Saeed was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment by ATC Lahore on terror funding charges. The court sentenced Saeed and his close aide Zafar Ibak to five-and-a-half-years imprisonment, ie 11 years imprisonment in two cases.
