Pakistan not included in FATF grey-list, confirms spokesperson
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan was not included in the grey-list issued by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), confirmed spokesperson Alexandra Daniel on Friday.
The spokesperson added that the FATF was not responsible for reports which claimed that the country had been added to the grey-list.
Dr Mohammad Faisal, spokesperson for the Foreign Office, earlier said that a request to include Pakistan in the grey-list was made in January by the United States and Britain.
“Pakistan has serious concerns over the motion moved by US and UK at the Financial Action Task Force to put the country on the grey list.”
The reservations tabled before the FATF are those of America, the spokesperson added. He specified that Pakistan has already taken action against most of the reservations, including implementing its own national action plan (NAP).
The FO spokesperson further added that reports from the FATF and the International Cooperation Review Group (ICRG) are still awaited.
