  • FATF is a device in arms of imperialist powers to pressurise growing states, Raza Rabbani says.
  • The incumbent authorities has bartered Pakistan’s political sovereignty, Rabbani says.
  • “Parliament has been reduced to a rubber stamp,” former chairman Senate provides.

ISLAMABAD: Indian Exterior Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s assertion has confirmed that Monetary Motion Job Drive FATF is a dummy organisation, former Senate chairman Senator Mian Raza Rabbani stated Tuesday.

Rabbani, in keeping with The Information, stated FATF was a device within the arms of the imperialist powers to pressurise growing states. “The government in its zeal to pander to international imperialism has made Pakistan a client state and bartered its political sovereignty.”

Rabbani’s feedback got here days after Jaishankar had admitted that Pakistan is on the gray listing of the FATF due to the “efforts of Narendra Modi’s government”.

Rabbani stated within the course of the residents have been disadvantaged of their basic rights beneath the Structure and subjected to worldwide jurisdictions with out the due strategy of legislation.

“Parliament has been reduced to a rubber stamp as it churned out bill after bill that was ultra vires of fundamental rights in the Constitution, 1973,” he said.

Rabbani said the government through these legislations has exposed Pakistanis to international jurisdictions, without the due process of law. “This will have far-reaching consequences as Washington-Tel Aviv-Delhi nexus pursues its political agenda in the region,” he said.

Senator Rabbani said the government was oblivious of the Indian game, as it kept on rapping the rag, that this time we will be out of the grey list, but that was not to be.

The former Senate chairman demanded that Parliament must now amend these laws to the extent of being repugnant to Fundamental Rights, Constitution, 1973 and subjecting citizens to international jurisdiction without the due process of law.

According to a report published by The Print, India’s Jaishankar credited the Modi-led government for its “efforts” to ensure that FATF kept Pakistan on the grey list.

The minister issued the statement while addressing BJP leaders’ training programme on the foreign policy of the government via video link, the outlet said.

“FATF as all of you know keep a check on fundings for terrorism and deals with black money supporting terrorism. Due to us, Pakistan is under the lens of FATF and it was kept [on] the grey list. We have been successful in pressurising Pakistan and the fact that Pakistan’s behaviour has changed is because of pressure put by India by various measures. Also terrorists from LeT and Jaish, India’s efforts through UN, have come under sanctions,” Jaishankar reportedly told the leaders, according to The Print.

FATF gives new six-point action plan

It should be recalled that on June 25, the FATF had said that it recognises Pakistan’s progress and efforts to address items in its country action plan that pertain to combating the financing of terrorism and has encouraged it to continue progress and address as soon as possible “the one remaining CFT-related merchandise”.

It had also handed the government six new anti-money laundering areas to work on.

Addressing a press conference after the June 21-25 plenary meeting concluded in Paris, FATF President Dr Marcus Pleyer had said that Pakistan remains under “elevated monitoring”.

“The Pakistani authorities has made substantial progress in making its counter-terrorist financing programs stronger and more practical. It has largely addressed 26 out of 27 objects on the motion plan it first dedicated to in June 2018,” he said.

Dr Pleyer had said that the plan focused on terrorist financing issues.

He had said that the one key action item still needs to be completed “which issues the investigation and prosecution of senior leaders and commanders of UN-designated terror teams”.

The FATF president highlighted that Pakistan has “made enhancements” after the Asia Pacific Group highlighted issues in 2019 during its assessment of Pakistan’s entire anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing system.

“These embrace clear efforts to lift consciousness within the personal sector to Pakistan’s cash laundering dangers and to develop and use monetary intelligence to construct a case.

“However Pakistan is still failing to effectively implement the global FATF standards across a number of areas. This means the risks of money laundering remain high which in turn can fuel corruption and organised crime.”

Dr Participant had stated that because of this the FATF has labored with the Pakistan authorities on new areas that also have to be improved as a part of a brand new motion plan that largely focuses on cash laundering dangers.

This consists of growing the variety of investigations and prosecutions and ensuring legislation enforcement businesses cooperate internationally to hint, freeze and confiscate belongings, he had stated.

“This is about helping authorities stop corruption and prevent organised criminals from profiting from their crimes and undermining the financial system and legitimate economy in Pakistan,” Dr Pleyer had added.
