Muslim Charity Linked to Pearl Killers
Pakistani investigators have found a definite and irrevocable link between a Muslim charity and one of the four suspects believed to be involved in the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in February 2002.
A ‘Trust Deed’, retrieved from at least two banks where Al-Akhtar Trust International outlawed by the American Treasury Department in 2003 for having links with Taliban and Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network has it accounts, shows that Saud Memon is one of the eleven trustees of the trust, highly placed sources told Daily Times on Monday.
The sources said the name of Saud Memon, who owns the shed where Pearl’s remains were found, appeared at number nine (9) on the list of the 11-member Board of Trustees. Saud Memon, an industrialist, had been named by several arrested members of the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen Al-Almi as their chief financial backer.
