    That's the irony and injustice of this world. Most of the money stolen from developing countries like Pakistan, India, African countries is invested by the corrupt elite the UK, Switzerland and places like Bahama. Even corrupt officials from countries like China are buying up properties in London, Sydney and SF. This looted money was supposed ot be used for road, hospitals and schools in these countries. This is a bigger crime. What is FATF doing about that?

    Has Switzerland ever been pressurized on this? FATF is currently just a blackmailing tool against Pakistan. Let me be very clear: I am not saying Pakistan does not have a lot to improve. We have allowed our corrupt elite to carry on with shady financial practices for long and Pakistani people are the ones who suffered most because of this. We certainly need to imrpove things. But the world financial chor bazars of London, Geneva etc also need to checked.

    This is the natural consequence of not being part of the US block. Repercussions are obvious.

    Shouldn't we have support from 10+ Arab countries as well...? Just wondering if their vote was in Pakistan's favor or did they decided to stay neutral?

    I just feel Malaysia is needling in matters that it needn't should. As most people already been saying that there is a greater play at hand against Pakistan from the likes of USA,UK and even India. I feel, Malaysia under Mahathir is seeing this through Islamic prism than as a sound foreign policy. Pakistan itself got in trouble because of the above reason. Hopefully if there is a Malaysian in this forum may be he could explain the approach.

    This is only an opinion, please don't go around trolling my country and my religion for something I said. Thank you

    India should also stop financing and providing arms to Baloch terrorists.

    And explain R&AW's involvement in Tamil Terror.

    The information has been contradictory. Some sources have said that the GCC votes as one bloc at FATF whilst others have said Saudi represents the GCC vote. Either way we lost their support for some reason at the previous vote (maybe they wanted to pressure Pakistan into doing something like entering the Yemen war). Good to see Malaysia standing up for us.

    @zulu , @graphican

    First thing look at FATF website:

    http://www.fatf-gafi.org/publicatio...s/fatf-compliance-february-2019.html#Pakistan

    I have not gone through recent most minutes of the committee, to be honest even india has admitted Pakistan's serious resolve towards implementation of FATF AP Group:

    https://www.thehindu.com/news/natio...ion-against-terror-groups/article27766338.ece

    If you know whose toe line this particular newspaper represent you ll understand the implications. I have already mentioned somewhere else on the board, supporting black/grey listing of Pakistan by India has been the best friendly gesture India has done to us in the last 70+ years. This is helping us put our own house in order we have already submitted compliance with 18 out of 27 points.

    Nutshell Blacklist seems out of question, I personally feel we should be in the grey list with the sword hanging around to be black listed this will ensure that we comply with FATF and international AML/KYC requirements. Actions against MNS, PPP Ghaddari, Faryal and lot more to come are steps in the right direction.

    As for being blacklisted it may be part of someone's wet dream but its not going to happen any time soon, particularly with a Govt which has shown its teeth where required, very serious in structural reforms and enjoys an international acceptance of being credible and please don't get me started on those peter licking cowards/ba**ards called Arabs.
