Pakistan freezes accounts of nuclear scientists

The Pakistan government has frozen the accounts of two nuclear scientist suspected of having links with Saudi renegade Osama bin Laden, a central bank spokesman said today.

The State Bank of Pakistan has frozen the assets of Sultan Bashiruddin Mehmood and Abdul Majid, who worked for Pakistan's Atomic Energy Commission until retiring in 1999, spokesman Syed Wasimuddin told a news agency.

The bank also froze accounts of industrialist Mohammed Tufail, he said.

The three were on the board of directors of Ummah Tameer-e-Nau, a charity that was declared a terrorist group by the United States on December 20.

The two scientists had made several trips to Afghanistan and were suspected of having transferred nuclear-related information to Laden. The two, however, claimed that they had discussed plans for the rehabilitation of the war-torn country with the terror suspect.
