(Pakdestiny.com) Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who returned to Pakistan today after 48-day stay in the United Kingdom where he underwent successful open-heart surgery is going to face opposition sit-in in at least 30 cities of the country in coming days.
Opposition parties – PTI, PPP, PML-Q and PAT – have agreed to launch sit-in in 30 cities. Veteran politician Sheikh Rashid of Awami Muslim has confirmed that a plan has been chalked out in this regard and Nawaz Sharif should expect a ‘fierce reaction’ for not forming a judicial commission to probe his family members over Panama Leaks.
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said the party’s preparations for launching a “massive protest movement” over the Panama leaks after July 20.
An investigation published April 3 by an international coalition of more than 100 media outlets ─ based on 11.5 million records and 2.6 terabytes of information drawn from the internal database of Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca ─ details how politicians, celebrities and other famous people use banks, law firms and offshore shell companies to hide their assets.
According to documents available on the ICIJ website, the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s children Maryam, Hasan and Hussain “were owners or had the right to authorise transactions for several companies”.
Independent observes say tough time is awaiting Sharif who may not be finding it easy to deflect the probe demand of opposition on Panama Leaks. – Pak Destiny
