FATF To Review Pakistan’s Report Tomorrow

ISLAMABAD: Financial Action Task Force (FATF) will review a report submitted by Pakistan comprising answers to 22 questions which it had asked to the country.

The report details Pakistan’s actions against the groups the United Nations has listed as terrorist organisations as well as sentences handed to them by the courts.

According to the report, investigations into the sponsors and facilitators funding the terrorist activities, as well as methodologies of the SBP and the FIA to stop terrorism-financing in future, have been explained.

The FATF, consequent to Pakistan’s responses, would schedule a meeting in Beijing, China, on January 21 to prepare follow-up conditions.

However, a categorical decision to remove Pakistan from the FATF’s grey list will be taken during a February 2020 plenary review meeting in Paris, France.
