We want to see Saeed being brought to justice: US

The United States has said it wants to see Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is brought to justice and this is the reason why it recently announced a reward of USD 10 million to anyone for information leading to his trial in a court of law.

"We have been very clear why this program, particularly our Rewards for Justice program, was put in place. We want to see this individual brought to justice," state department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.

"As you remember at the time, there was a lot of speculation of why we did this because everyone knows he's in Pakistan. What we want to do is give the Pakistani authorities the judicial wherewithal to bring this guy to justice," he said.

"Whether he is tried in a Pakistani court or in a US court or wherever, we want to see him brought to justice," Toner said.
