Law enforcers get ‘legal teeth’ to tackle terrorism in Pakistan

Anti Terrorism

ISLAMABAD – The Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) got ‘legal teeth’ to tackle the menace of terrorism in the country as the Parliament approved new Anti-terrorism Bill.

National Assembly approved the amendments in Anti-terrorism Bill on Friday only one day after Senate approved it.

The Anti-terrorism (Second Amendment) Bill, 2014, moved by Minister for Science and Technology Zahid Hamid, would be helpful in countering the terrorist organisations and their supporters who are involved in financing the terrorism and money laundering inside Pakistan.

The opposition-controlled Senate had unanimously approved five bills yesterday, including two controversial anti-terrorism laws, which had earlier been passed by the National Assembly.
