What does PM have to hide, questions Bilawal


KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has criticised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Panama Papers leak featuring offshore assets of the premier’s family.


His remarks came two days after Nawaz Sharif in his televised address to the nation announced that his government had decided to formally ask the Chief Justice of Pakistan to set up a judicial commission for investigations into Panama Papers leak.

The PM said he is ready to go home if found guilty.

Bilawal’s remarks were in sharp contrast to a senior leader of his own party, Syed Khursheed Shah, who is Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly.

Shah had lauded the PM for accepting the opposition’s major demand of the letter.

“It was a unanimous decision of all opposition parties to write a letter to CJP for setting up a commission. However, some misconceptions were surfaced that judges are reluctant to become member of the commission,” Shah was quoted as saying, while speaking to reporters on Friday.
