Broadsheet is simply the tip of the iceberg, Prime Minister Imran Khan stated Wednesday in a sequence of tweets in regards to the corruption of the elite in Pakistan and the way it stands uncovered.
The premier stated the elite can not cover behind the “victimisation” card in the case of worldwide revelations, making a reference to the Panama and Broadsheet scandals.
A day earlier, Information Minister Shibli Faraz had introduced an inter-ministerial committee to analyze Broadsheet scandal.
The Panama papers uncovered the corruption and cash laundering of Pakistan’s ruling elite and now they’ve been uncovered once more after the Broadsheet revelations, PM Khan wrote on Twitter.
An interview of Broadsheet CEO Kaveh Moussavi has surfaced on YouTube wherein he makes a number of claims concerning the agency’s investigation into the property of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif held overseas.
The premier listed down 4 issues the “revelations” uncovered repeatedly.
The first, he stated, was what he has been saying in his 24-year combat towards corruption that it’s the largest menace to Pakistan’s progress
The second was that the elites come to energy and plunder the nation and third that they launder cash to stash their ill-gotten beneficial properties overseas, protected from home prosecution.
Lastly, the premier stated the elites then use their political clout to get NROs. “That is how they kept their plundered wealth safe. People of Pak are biggest losers,” PM Khan wrote.
“Not only is their nation’s wealth stolen by the elites, their taxpayer money, paid for recovering this wealth, is wasted because of NROs,” the PM stated, including that the Broadsheet revelation is simply the tip of the iceberg.
“We want complete transparency from Broadsheet on our elites money laundering and on who stopped investigations,” he concluded.
