Islamabad, Aug 4 (PTI) Pakistan’s National Assembly has passed a bill, which will help the country avoid the Financial Action Task Force‚Äôs grey list forever if it is enforced and properly implemented.

The lower house of Parliament passed the bill on Thursday that seeks to form a central authority to curb money laundering and terror financing, bringing all institutions related to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) under one command.
