Specially Designated Global Terrorist: US adds LeT commander Abdul Rehman on list
The US today designated LeT commander Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil, who till recently was LeT's divisional commander for the Jammu region, as a "Specially Designated Global Terrorist".
After his release from Pakistani custody, Dakhil returned to work for the LeT.
Among other consequences, all of his property and interests subject to US jurisdiction are blocked, and US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with him.
"Today's action notifies the US public and the international community that Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil has committed, or poses a significant risk of committing, acts of terrorism," the State Department said.
Designations of terrorist individuals and groups expose and isolate organizations and individuals, and deny them access to the US financial system, it added.
