Pakistan in FATF’s Crosshairs: What to expect as key meetings begin

The financial action task force (FATF) has begun a series of meetings that will review Pakistan’s actions to counter terror financing. At the conclusion of its last plenary in October, FATF had given Pakistan time till February this year to address the issue. The global watchdog had placed Pakistan in the 'grey list' in June 2018. There will be eight meetings of FATF’s working groups between February 11 and 19 before the crucial plenary meeting during February 22-25 that will take a final call on Pakistan’s case. All meetings are being held virtually in view of Covid-19 pandemic. What happens if Pakistan does get blacklisted by the FATF? Will FATF call out Pakistan's bluff this time around? Or will it manage to evade blacklisting yet again? The suspense will end before February 25th. Watch the full video for more.
