No compromise on Panama Papers probe, says Khan

Islamabad: Cricketer-turned politician and Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan has chaired a meeting on media strategy here on Saturday evening in order to review the government’s fresh accusations to avert public attention from Panama Papers probe.

The meeting was held in Islamabad, which was attended by senior PTI leaders including Asad Umar, Shireen Mazari, Faisal Javed, Imram Ismael and other prominent leaders.

Separately, earlier today, the PTI leader Shireen Mazari told the media that PMLN leader Danial Aziz must present evidences to the Interior Ministry against those allegations he is raising for 2nd November protest.

It is pertinent to mention here that Danial Aziz of PMLN had accused PTI leadership to invite some banned organization in order to create chaos during sit-in at Islamabad.

On the other hand, Imran Khan has seized the Panama Papers scandal as a fresh chance to try to topple Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Earlier, the cricketer-turned politician staged protests in Islamabad for months in 2014 over alleged electoral fraud but failed to topple the prime minister.

Leaked documents from the Mossack Fonseca law firm in Panama in April showed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif‘s sons Hassan and Hussain, and daughter Maryam, owned at least three offshore companies.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which studied the papers, said those companies, had engaged in at least $25 million in property and acquisition deals. Premier Nawaz has claimed his children have done nothing illegal, but opponents accuse the family of using the tax haven to launder stolen money and dodge taxes.
