FRANKFURT (Reuters) – A global dirty money watchdog said on Friday it was keeping Pakistan on its “grey list” of countries under heightened scrutiny, but said it could be removed after an on-site visit to check its progress in the fight against the financing of terrorism.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) said Pakistan has nearly completed its two action plans, covering 34 points.
But he said a site visit was warranted to check that reforms had started and were continuing, as well as that the necessary political commitment remained in place to support improvements in the future.
“Pakistan is not removed from the gray list today. The country will be removed from the list if it passes the on-site visit,” FATF Chairman Marcus Pleyer told a news conference. .
