Nehal Hashmi appreciates ICIJ clarification over PM's name in Panama Papers


KARACHI, April 27 (APP): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz
(PML-N) Sindh Secretary General Senator Nehal Hashmi has hailed
the removal of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s name
by journalists’ consortium, which was behind the release of
Panama Papers containing details of offshore companies, from all
its news stories.
Talking to APP here on Wednesday, the PML-N leader said that the
International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has admitted its mistake and clarified that due to an editing error Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s name had wrongly appeared in news report saying that he controlled an offshore company.
Nehal Hashmi said that as the ICIJ had removed the name of Prime
Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif from the list of offshore
companies, media keeping in view the values of journalism
should prominently cover that clarification, so that the nation
could know that Prime Minister’s name was not in the list
of offshore companies.
