Pakistan is blacklisted by FATF subgroup for terror funding, finance ministry denies reports.

According to details, The Asia-Pacific Group (APG) of the global watchdog for terror financing and money laundering has put Pakistan in blacklist. The decision was taken in a meeting in Canberra, Australia, on Friday.

The body placed Pakistan on ‘Enhanced Expedited Follow-Up List’ (blacklist) for failing to meet the requirements.

The current blacklisting of Pakistan would make its case much more difficult during FAFT review in October. Pakistan has to show compliance on the FATF action plan in the next plenary session, which will do the final review in October.

Pakistan was grey listed by Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in June 2018 after much pressure from countries like the US, France, Germany, the UK, which had supported India. It said Pakistan had failed to complete its action plan on terror financing, warning Islamabad to meet its commitment by October or face action, which could possibly lead to the country’s blacklisting, Business Today reported.
