Pakistan – Pakistan remains under the scrutiny of FATF (Aakriti Vinayak, VIF)

Amidst the changing regional and geopolitical dynamics, Pakistan remains mired in complexities and uncertainties. It continues to remain under the scrutiny of the terror-financing watchdog Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and is under immense pressure to prove the effectiveness of its measures related to money laundering and counter-terror financing. From 21-25 June 2021, review meetings of the FATF were held to take a call on whether to keep Pakistan on the terror financing watchdog’s ‘grey list’, remove it from the list or push it into the ‘black list. In a huge setback to Pakistan, FATF has retained the country on its “grey list”.
