Pakistan continues to remain in the FATF grey list for not recognising the risks posed by terrorist organisations

The country has been given the October deadline to complete its action plan to get out of the grey list, failing which it might be blacklisted.

Global terror financing watchdog Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has condemned the Pulwama terrorist attack in its plenary meeting in Paris. It has decided to keep Pakistan in its Grey list considering that the country has failed to complete the actions plans having deadlines in January 2019, and had asked Pakistan to complete its action plan which is due in May 2019.


The organisation has also called out the country for failing to understand the risk posed by terrorist organisations like Al‑Qaida, Jamat‑ud‑Dawa, Lashkar‑e‑Taiba, Jaish‑e‑Mohammad and persons associated with the Taliban.


Seems like Pakistan’s farce of reinstating the ban on the terrorist organisation Jamat‑ud‑Dawa run by 26/11 terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed and its charity Falah‑e‑Insaniyat did not help the country in saving its face before the international community. The country has been given the October deadline to complete its action plan to get out of the grey list, failing which it might be blacklisted. Being in the FATF grey list makes it difficult for a country to get international loans.
