A five-member delegation of Pakistan on Saturday (Dec 7) will attend an important meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) that will conduct a preliminary review of Pakistan’s progress report of achieving 40 recommendations in its action plan for uprooting money laundering and terror financing from the country.
The report carries Pakistan’s response to the FATF’s action plan, and observed that the country has shown progress in 36 out of the 40 recommendations. Pakistan submitted a report comprising answers to 22 questions to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), officials said on Friday.
The report details Pakistan’s actions against the groups the United Nations has listed as terrorist organisations as well as sentences handed to them by the courts.
Prepared by the representatives of the ministries of foreign affairs, interior, and finance, Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), Financial Monitoring Unit, State Bank of Pakistan, National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA), Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), and the Pakistan Army, the report further notes that common people who worked in groups the UN listed as terrorist organisations were provided alternative employment, while the control of some 113 madrassas has been handed over to the federal government.
The said madrassas were now working under the relevant assistant commissioners, whereas the teachers and students in those institutions had been provided a two-year budget.
