Pakistan Took No Action Upon 26/11 Mastermind Hafiz Saeed, In a significant delay for the Imran Khan government in Pakistan, Financial Action Task Force (FATF),
the world money-laundering watchdog, on Monday, told the people had not taken sufficient measures to implement UNSCR 1267 obligations upon 26/11 fully
mastermind Hafiz Saeed and other terrorists associated with terrorist organisations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa.
After thoroughly examining Pakistan’s progress record on curbing money flows to terrorists and terrorist groups, FATF told that Pakistan must “identify, evaluate and understand its money laundering, terror financing risks, including transnational opportunities and risks associated with terrorist groups” operating from its soil.
The FATF report is part of a report published by its regional body, the Asia Pacific Group (APG),
which says that Islamabad has mostly but partially complied with 36 of the 40 parameters established by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) at the time of the country’s formation in the grey list.
“Except for some new actions explained in detail below, Pakistan has not taken sufficient steps to fully implement UNSCR 1267 obligations upon all listed individuals and things.
particularly those connected with Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT)/Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) as healthy as the groups’ leader Hafiz Saeed,” the statement says.
The report also calls into issue resolutions taken by the Pakistani business without using them to their logical conclusion such as, “On Feb 2018,
Pakistan announced the Anti-Terrorism (Amendment) Ordinance 2018, which amended the ATA to proscribe people and entities listed at the United Nations automatically. Now, following the adoption of this amendment, Pakistan seized various articles of assets belonging to JuD/FIF, after minimum actions had been taken before this point.”
Pakistan Took No Action Upon 26/11 Mastermind Hafiz Saeed, The report confirms India’s case for the FATF plenary in Paris next week. The 13-18 October conference will examine the findings of the mutual evaluation report (MER) on Pakistan brought out by APG on money laundering.
