*ISLAMABAD: **Financial Action Task Force FATF outs new stringent condition upon Pakistan.*

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has told Pakistan to ensure that individuals affiliated with proscribed organisations were convicted and also sought details of the legal measures it had taken to regulate madrassas.

According to finance ministry sources, Pakistan has received a questionnaire from the global money-laundering and terror-financing watchdog containing 150 queries.

The FATF has also sought copies of the FIRs registered against members of banned outfits.

The sources said the FATF has sent in the questionnaire in response to a report Pakistan had submitted to the global body on December 3.

Pakistan has up till January 8 to send its replies to the questionnaire. Islamabad’s response will determine whether the watchdog continues to keep the country on its grey list or not.
