'Defiant' Pak continues to sing jaded 'evidence to nail JuD terror chief Saeed' tune

Islamabad, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 ANI

Islamabad / Washington, Apr 5(ANI): Pakistan has said it would 'need concrete evidence' to nail Jamad -ud Dawa terror chief Hafiz Saeed instead of engaging in a public discussion on the issue.

"In a democratic country like Pakistan, where the judiciary is independent, evidence against anyone must withstand judicial scrutiny," The Express Tribune quoted Foreign Office spokesperson Abdul Basit, as saying.

His statement was Pakistan's first reaction to the US' decision to impose a 10 million dollar bounty on Saeed's head.

Toner also sought to clarify the US reward on Saeed by claiming that his country was offering the reward for information that would allow for the latter's prosecution rather than just reveal his whereabouts.

"We all know where he is - you know, every journalist in Pakistan and in the region knows how to find him - but we're looking for information that can be usable to convict him in a court of law," Toner said.

He denied that the United States was trying to put across new demands to Pakistan, which is currently reviewing ties with the US.

"It's not to put pressure on any one government. But we wanted to be able to provide Pakistan with the tools that they need to prosecute this individual," Toner said.

Saeed had earlier mocked the US' decision to impose the 10 million dollar bounty on him and added that he was ready to face "any American court" to answer charges.

"If the United States wants to contact me, I am present, they can contact me. I am also ready to face any American court, or wherever there is proof against me," he said. (ANI)
