The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) on Friday, October 23, voted to keep Pakistan on a grey list for the Imran Khan government’s failure to obey with a 27 point action plan.
The anti-terrorism monitoring group decision would have a setback for the PM Khan who had made efforts in the run-up to the virtual meeting of the FATF plenary to get his country off-the-hook. The FATF, however, didn’t let Pakistan’s status change, mostly because of Pakistan’s inability to substantially deliver on 6 of the 27 action points.
Pakistan was placed on the watchdog’s grey list in June 2018. According to media reports, Turkey supported Pakistan and said that the FATF members should consider the country’s good work. Turkey went further to suggest that the Financial Action Task Force should dispatch an on-site team to Pakistan to finalise its assessment instead of waiting for the completion of the remaining six out of 27 parameters.
