Pakistan to remain in 'grey' list of FATF till February 2021 following failure to take action against Maulana Masood Azhar
The virtual plenary of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), held in the last three days, concluded that Pakistan will continue in its 'grey' list.
They said the money was deposited by top leadership of the terror group JeM between January and February 2019.
The Pakistan government ordered the seizure of all movable and immovable properties of these outfits and individuals, and freezing of their bank accounts.
The FATF put Pakistan on the grey list in June 2018 and asked Islamabad to implement a plan of action by the end of 2019, but the deadline was extended later due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The US State Department, in its Congressional-mandated 2019 Country Reports on Terrorism on Wednesday, said Pakistan remained a "safe harbour" for regionally-focused terrorist groups.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah wrote in the dossier that the Modi government is synonymous with national security, development and welfare of the poor.
The reaction comes after NIA filing a charge sheet yesterday against Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar in the Pathankot attack.
India will take up with China the issue of backing New Delhi's move for placing JeM chief Masood Azhar on the UN sanctions list.
