Imran seeks PM Sharif’s clarification over Panama Papers


London: Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after Panama Papers revealed that his children ran shell companies through which they owned expensive property in London, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said the Prime Minister never thought to clear the air on the issue.

On the contrary, he said, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, who was also facing the charges under the Panama Papers revelations, made his tax payments record for the past five-six years public.

“How will he (Nawaz Sharif) as a Prime Minister tell others to declare assets when he himself has not done so,” asked PTI chairman, during his visit to U.K. over for two fundraisers and a jalsa in ‘Birmingham for Kashmir’.

“I want to ask Mian Saheb (Nawaz Sharif), what was the need to open fraud accounts?”

In a series of tweet on Friday, Khan said, “Spanish minister resigns in wake of Panama Leaks & no inquiry committee was needed as he lost all moral authority to hold the position. Why doesn’t our PM realise that in a democracy once a PM loses moral authority he cannot hold that office?”

Earlier, he had rejected a one-member judicial commission announced by Prime Minster Sharif to probe his family.

He rather demanded fresh elections and probes by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), the Federal Board of Revenue, and the Election Commission of Pakistan. (ANI)
