ISLAMABAD - Senator, Faisal Javed Khan on Tuesday said the government was optimistic that Financial Action Task Force (FATF) bills would be passed by the Senate. Talking to a private news channel he said if FATF bills would not pass the country would face serious financial problems. He said the government would take opposition into confidence to pass the bills and hoped that the opposition would cooperate for national interest. The Senator further said opposition should not mislead people of Pakistan as it was blackmailing the government on the FATF bills for its own benefits. Prime Minister Imran Khan has made it clear that no National Reconciliation Ordinance would be given as it was not in national interest, he added. Opposition wanted 34-points to be changed in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) law, based on money laundering, but the government’s stance was that when the whole country was against money laundering, why not the opposition, the Senator said.
