ISLAMABAD (92 News) - After approval of National Assembly, the Senate on Thursday unanimously passed the Anti-Terrorism Act (Amendment) Bill and United Nations Security Council (Amendment) Bill, 2020.
The Anti-Terrorism Bill has been passed during a Senate session chaired by Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani which is required to fulfill certain requirements of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to get the country off the grey list.
The Upper House also passed the UNSC Bill. The bills had been moved by Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan.
While addressing the floor of the House, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi thanked the Senate members for approving the legislation.
Qureshi said Pakistan had undertaken this legislation in compliance of its obligations to implement the International Court of Justice’s judgment in Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
Speaking about the International Court of Justice (Review and Re-consideration) Ordinance, 2020, the foreign minister said it was also a step to fulfill Pakistan’s international obligations.
“No concession has been granted to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav by making new laws,” he said. The foreign minister also expressed confidence that after this legislation Pakistan would stay off the FATF’s grey list.
