Pakistan could be blacklisted by Paris-based FATF

AP
Pakistan could be blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force, FATF due to insufficient physical actions on the ground against banned terror groups to block the flow of funds and activities. 

In June last year, the Paris-based FATF had placed Pakistan on the 'grey list' of countries whose domestic laws are considered weak to tackle the challenges of money laundering and terror financing.

A group of experts from the FATF recently visited Pakistan to review the progress made by Islamabad on global standards against financial crimes to warrant its exclusion from the watchdog's grey list. 

The FATF noted that Pakistan had revised its terror financing risk assessment but did not demonstrate a proper understanding of the terror financing risks posed by the Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda, Jamaat-ud-Dawah, Falah-i-Insaniat, LeT, JeM, Haqqani Network and persons affiliated with the Taliban.

Pakistan's foreign minister has acknowledged that the country could lose up to 10 billion dollars annually if it remains on that list.
