Core cell, civil-military team made Pakistan proud: COAS

Following the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) news related to Pakistan’s grey-listing, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said the core cell at the General Headquarters and the civil-military team synergised the implementation of the action plan and made Pakistan proud.

Taking to Twitter, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) quoted the army chief as saying that the completion of the FATF’s anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism plans by Pakistan was a great achievement. “Core cell at GHQ which steered the national effort and civil-military team which synergised implementation of action plan made it possible, making Pakistan proud,” it quoted the army chief as saying.

It may be mentioned here that the special cell at the GHQ, headed by the DG military operations, was established in 2019 on the orders of the COAS after consultation with the then government. When the military cell took over the responsibility, only five items of the FATF points were completed. The cell established a comprehensive mechanism among more than 30 departments, ministries and agencies to ensure the implementation of the policies.
