PM writes letter to CJ for Panama commission



ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced that he was writing a letter to Chief Justice of Supreme Court to investigate allegations of offshore companies against his family in the wake of Panama leaks.

“I will go home if any allegation against him or his family is proved by the judicial commission,” Nawaz Sharif said in a televised address to the nation.

“We announced the formation of a commission despite the fact there was no such demand from masses,” he said, adding that he was not going to be deterred by the threats of his opponents.

“The people of Pakistan have elected me as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and I am only accountable to them after the Almighty. I want to make an important announcement that I will write a letter to Chief Justice of Supreme Court to form a commission to investigate the matter.

“I will accept the recommendations of this commission,” PM Sharif said.

He said that once again attempts were being made to destabilize Pakistan for the greed of power.

“Allegations are being hurled against me on the basis of Panama papers. These are 20 years old allegations. Former directory Pervez Musharraf had failed to prove a single penny of corruption against his family,” he said.

“I present my whole family for accountability in line with the norms of a democratic society. Our assets are fully declared. It was our governemnt which had published a tax directory and uploaded it on website.”

He said that he asked Finance Minister Ishaq Dar to ensure that assets of parliamentarians were available on ECP’s website.

“When it came to my knowledge that ECP removed details of assets of MPs. I immediately directed Ishaq Dar to upload it on website as it is people’s right.”

He said that his government would complete its five-year term at every cost.

The prime minister also severally criticized Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and his sit-in.

“Who will apprehend those who caused massive economic losses to the country due to their sit-in,” he asked.  “This is a fascist mindset, which is bent upon ruining this country. It is an unpardonable crime .”
