The Pakistani delegation includes officials of the finance ministry, as well as the representatives of the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).
Measures taken by Pakistan to prevent terror financing will also be reviewed in the FATF meeting.
As per Prime Minister’s adviser on finance and revenue, Dr. Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, Islamabad had completed 20 of the steps.
According to reports, Pakistan had already achieved most of the FATF measures, such as banning terrorist organisations. In addition, it had also taken steps to seize the properties of proscribed outfits and stopped them from doing business.
The Paris-based FATF is an inter-governmental body that combats money laundering, terrorist financing and threats to the international financial system.
FATF put Pakistan on its grey list in June 2018 because of deficiencies in the country’s anti-money laundering and countering of terror financing regulations.
