The International Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has put Turkey on a ‘grey list’ of countries that ‘do not do enough’ to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. FATF President Marcus Pleyer stated that Turkey has made progress on black propaganda and financing of terrorism.
Stating that the number of countries under surveillance has been increased, FATF President Marcus Pleyer said that Pandora documents also contain information on money laundering and that it should be fought hard.
Botswana and Mauritis were removed from the list during the investigations. Jordan, Mali and Turkey were put on the gray list. Stating that Turkey has made progress on black propaganda and financing of terrorism, Pleyer said that there are still serious problems. Pleyer stated that Turkey has made commitments in this regard but needs to turn them into concrete actions.
The group, also known as the gray list, included countries such as Albania, Morocco, Syria, South Sudan and Yemen.
