UPDATE: Crisis in the Second General Assembly

By Sonia Feng, for the Sydney Morning Herald

New evidence has emerged that Pakistan’s government was aware at least 9 months ago that at least one terrorist organisation operating within their borders, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), had been using accounts in Citibank to launder money. However, they neglected to inform other nations of their suspicions, and attempted to manage this issue internally.

Lashkar-e-Taiba is one of the largest and most active jihadi organisations in South Asia, and was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.

It has been labelled as a terrorist organisation. There have been longstanding rumours regarding the relationships between Pakistan’s main intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), and LeT, however evidence for collaboration between the two remains unclear.
