(Pakdestiny.com)  Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is under ‘immense pressure’ to start transparent investigation against his two sons and a daughter in money laundering case with reference to off-shore companies after  Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif dismissed 12 army officers, including a three-star general, from service over alleged corruption.

“Now ball is in the court of Sharif act or face the consequences,” Khursheed Shah, opposition leader in National Assembly, said today. Without naming PM Sharif, Shah said the ruling party should read the writing on the wall.

The Sharifs and their close aids are very much upset and all eyes on them whether they have nerves to tackle this immense pressure.

Qamar Zaman Kaira of the PPP said it was time for the PM and his family to come clean regarding the Panama leaks, adding that the opposition parties had “no differences over the initiation of a transparent inquiry”. “Things done through consensus take time, and the Panama inquiry will also take some time.”

Jamaat-i-Islami’s Ameer Sirajul Haq said the civilian leadership should stand united against “economic terrorism” like it stands against militancy and terrorism after Army Public School massacre. He said the government was “still confused about forming a commission over Panama Papers”. – Pak Destiny
