NAB should probe Sharif family over ‘Panama Papers’ leak: Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has demanded that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) initiate a thorough probe into the financial holdings of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members after the “Panama Papers” leak.

A massive leak of documents from a Panamanian law firm revealed that Sharif family “owned or had the right to authorise transactions for several offshore companies”, Dawn online reported.

“Probes have already been initiated in several countries — including Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and France — across the globe after their leaders and office bearers were implicated,” said Imran.

“If NAB wants to maintain its credibility, it should immediately begin a probe into Sharif’s family.”

Imran said: “Sharif should explain how his children made all this money.” He asked if Sharif’s family have “paid tax on this income”.

Imran said the data leak was a defining moment for Pakistan, and added: “How can those who launder money from Pakistan to offshore accounts ask others to invest in the country?”

He said that Maryam Nawaz had given a statement two years ago that her family did not have any assets abroad.
