Topic: FATF Setback for Pakistan

Guest:

  • Gurjit Singh, (Former Ambassador)
  • Maj Gen Ashwani Kumar Siwach (Retd., Strategic Analyst)
  • Dr. Sreeram Chaulia, (Foreign Affair Expert)

Topic Description:

Financial Action Task Force, the international money laundering watchdog warned Pakistan that it did not taken sufficient measures to fully implement a UNSC resolution against 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and other terrorists associated with terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa. After closely scrutinising Pakistan’s progress record on curbing money flows to terrorists and terrorist organisations, FATF said that Pakistan must “identify, assess and understand its money laundering, terror financing risks, including transnational risks and risks associated with terrorist groups” operating from its soil. The FATF report, published on Saturday, comes a week before the agency decides whether or not to retain Pakistan in an "enhanced blacklist" in which it had been included in August after it failed to comply with 32 of the 40 parameters.
