FATF’s Asia Pacific arm slams Pakistan on terror financing

In a major setback to Pakistan, Asia-Pacific Group of FATF slammed Islamabad for not taking sufficient measures against individuals and entities associated with terror groups.

The Asia-Pacific Group on Money Laundering on Saturday published its report on money-laundering and terror-financing in Pakistan, a week before the annual plenary of the FATF.

The report said Islamabad “has not taken sufficient” measures to fully implement UNSCR 1267 obligations against all listed individuals and entities – especially those associated with Lashkar-eTayyiba, Jamaat-ud-Dawa, and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation as well as the groups’ leader Hafiz Saeed.

The Report came heavily on Pakistan’s central bank, market regulator and exchange Commission over terror financing. DD News
