Maryam raps govt over FATF grey list 

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has taken a swipe at the government over FATF grey list.

The daughter of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif, who was declared disqualified by the country's top court over corruption, took to social media and called the PM Imran Khan-led government 'disqualified and selected'.

The 'disqualified' manipulated the data, she tweeted, adding that the 'selected' went for begging and gimmickry but no one even picks their phone calls.

She said on third year too, Pakistan is on FAFT grey list and the 'selected' has failed to get honoured abroad as well.

Earlier in the day, Federal Industries and Production Minister Hammad Azhar said Pakistan won't be placed on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) blacklist. He was addressing a press conference after the announcement of keeping Pakistan on FAFT grey list.

"We have completed 26 out of 27 points. The earlier action plan was difficult. The second plan given to us was about money laundering,” he explained, adding that they would complete the remaining points of action plan very soon.
