Question: Where does Hafiz Mohammad Saeed have to be convicted for an informant to be eligible for a Rewards for Justice reward payment? How much money has been paid through the Rewards for Justice program for each case?
Answer: An informant could be eligible for a Rewards for Justice reward payment if his or her information were to lead to Saeed’s conviction in any U.S. or foreign court of law for his terrorist acts.
For reasons of security and confidentiality, we do not publicly disclose such detailed information about RFJ reward payments. RFJ does occasionally make limited announcements about high-profile reward payments. We also provide a classified report to Congress after a payment has been made. We can say that since its inception, the Rewards for Justice program has paid more than $100 million to more than 70 people who provided information that prevented international terrorist attacks or helped bring to justice those involved in such acts.
