It’s grey and not black

ISLAMABAD: As evident from the statements issued by the offices concerned, the government seems to be much elated that the country has not been put on the ‘black’ list by the FATF, but it’s only ‘grey-listing’, which was decided back in February that will now be implemented. Either way this implies that the Pakistani delegation couldn’t put its case forcefully when back at home certain measures acted upon in the meantime also actually negated the effect of any of the measures Pakistan had taken to satisfy the FATF’s demands.
