ISLAMABAD: Members of the opposition parties in the Senate arranged a walkout on Monday as a symbolic protest against the government upon the Parliament not being taken into confidence in regards to the investigation of the Panama Leaks.

Leader of the Opposition in the Senate Aitzaz Ahsan while delivering a speech inquired that “why does not the Prime Minister take the Parliament into confidence about the Panama Leaks (investigation)?” adding that the opposition will keep arranging walkouts as long as PM Nawaz Sharif does not respond in the Parliament to the allegations leveled against him in the Panama Papers.

Opposition members walked out of the Senate after Aitzaz Ahsan’s speech concluded but soon returned.
