Pakistan's FIU, the Financial Monitoring Unit (FMU), is located within Pakistan's central bank, the State Bank of Pakistan.

Pakistan criminalises Terrorist Financing under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 (available via FMU website).

Pakistan underwent its second mutual evaluation in 2009. The full report of Pakistan's second mutual evaluation was adopted in July 2009 at the APG Annual Meeting.  The full report is available via the Documents section of this website.
