Has FATF Asia Pacific Group blacklisted Pakistan?

ISLAMABAD A spokesperson of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has dismissed reports of the Asia Pacific Group (APG) blacklisting Pakistan.

FATF spokesperson Alexandra Wijmenga clarified that only the FATF had the authority to blacklist, not its regional affiliate APG.

According to the spokesperson, the FATF will hold its meeting on October 14-18 in Paris and decisions which are taken would be published.

Earlier, the Ministry of Finance rejected link in the Indian media that Pakistan had been blacklisted by the APG.

“Media reports circulating about Pakistan being blacklisted by APG is incorrect and baseless,” a press release from the ministry said.
