She added that the government has repeatedly tried to implement the policies to counter corruption as it was seen that a limited segment of the society is involved in driving misappropriation, not the entire community.
Dr. Mazari also stressed that FATF also played its role to address the anti-corruption efforts and addressing the injustices and illicit financial flows and effective resource mobilization.
She also said that the developing countries have been facing corruption which was the antithesis of the core Human Rights principle of transparency.
