Pandora Papers: Pakistan's opposition parties demand Imran Khan's resignation

PML-N Secretary-General Ahsan Iqbal said Imran Khan bragged about being a champion of the anti-corruption campaign but hid the facts on his foreign gifts about the received gifts.

 

Opposition leaders have demanded the resignation of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan over the latest controversy regarding his name appearing in Pandora Papers.

While addressing a press conference, PML-N Secretary-General Ahsan Iqbal said that Khan should resign as his name appeared in Pandora Papers.

"After Imran Khan's name surfaced in Pandora leaks, there is no moral justification for him to retain the post of the premier," Iqbal said.

Iqbal said that Khan's Pandora box is about to open. He also said that Khan, who bragged about being a champion of the anti-corruption campaign, was himself hiding facts on his foreign gifts by hiding details about the received gifts.

The Pandora Papers has revealed 700 Pakistani individuals and members of Prime Minister Imran Khan's cabinet, inner circle, including cabinet ministers, their families and major financial backers.

Among those whose holdings have been exposed are Khan's finance minister, Shaukat Fayaz Ahmed Tarin, and his family, and the son of Khan's former adviser for finance and revenue, Waqar Masood Khan.

According to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, the records also reveal the offshore dealings of a top PTI donor, Arif Naqvi, who is facing fraud charges in the US.

The revelations are part of the Pandora Papers, a new global investigation into the shadowy offshore financial system that allows multinational corporations, the rich, famous and powerful, to avoid taxes and otherwise shield their wealth.
