Pakistan has to comply with decisions of ICJ, requirements of FATF; Senate informed July 29, 2020

ISLAMABAD-Law Minister Farogh Naseem says that it is out of question that the incumbent government in Pakistan will intentionally pass a law repugnant to fundamental human rights.

Responding to points raised by the opposition benches in the Senate today (Wednesday), he said that being a responsible nation state, Pakistan has to comply with the decisions of the International Court of Justice and the requirements of the Financial Action Task Force.

He said it is obligatory for Pakistan to pass “The Anti-Terrorism (Amendment) Bill, 2020” and “The United Nations (Security Council) (Amendment) Bill, 2020” before 6th of the next month to comply with these requirements.

He, however, dispelled the impression that any law is being enacted to facilitate Indian spy, Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav.
