Pakistan is unlikely to exit the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) ‘grey’ list until June, despite its efforts to garner support from the member nations ahead of the plenary meeting of the global terror financing and money laundering watchdog next week, according to a media report on Wednesday.
The FATF’s Plenary and Working Group meetings, scheduled to be held from February 21 to 26 in Paris, is all set to decide on Pakistan’s grey list status.
Pakistan was placed on the ‘grey’ list in June 2018 and given a timeline to implement 27 action points.
According to a report in The Express Tribune newspaper, officials admitted that Pakistan would remain in the ‘grey’ list at least until June.
