LAHORE, April 24 (APP): Federal Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid Sunday said the commission on Panama Papers Leaks was a litmus test of character as the honest would welcome it and the dishonest would reject it to save themselves and their companions.
Speaking at `Meet the Press’ alongside Barrister Zafarullah Khan here at the Lahore Press Club (LPC), he said Imran Khan’s refusal to accept the commission was the victory of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. Had Imran Khan’s companions not been involved in corruption cases, he would not have refused to accept the Terms of Reference
(ToRs) of the commission on Panama Papers, he added.
To a query, the Information Minister said most of the investors of Imran Khan’s political campaign and `fun-fairs’ were involved in different scams like the EOBI, graveyard land and writing-off loans.
