ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has demanded the list of those people who are running businesses on fake Identity cards.

According to the sources, NADRA has given the list of people to Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). The FBR asked the banks for details of the accounts created on these ID cards.

The number of people registered on the basis of fake ID cards is in the thousands. NADRA started the process of detecting fake ID cards four months ago.

The Financial Monitoring Unit first obtained the details of these ID cards, which are being used to track down those involved in money laundering.

The process of identifying the bank officials who created fake bank accounts is also underway.

Those who obtain import license on the basis of fake ID cards will also be traced. In the next two months, the data will also be verified by the State Bank of Pakistan.

There will also be screening of ID cards of remittances and recipients from abroad.
