Pak government defends freeze of Al-Akhtar accounts

Karachi: Pakistan's Finance Ministry has defended its decision to freeze the accounts of the Al-Akhtar Trust because of its alleged national and international links to terrorist outfits. Presenting its defense before a two-judge bench of the Sindh High Court on Tuesday, the ministry's representative, Deputy Attorney General Syed Zaki Muhammad, said the step was taken after a careful assessment of national security considerations. Muhammad was responding to a constitutional petition filed by the Al-Akhtar Trust.
