ISLAMABAD, Feb 23 (APP): Special Assistant to the Prime
Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Zafarullah Khan Thursday
said the Prime Minister and his family would be proved innocent in
Panama Papers case.
Talking to PTV, he said Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML N) would accept the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Panama Papers issue.
He observed that Panama Papers had revealed the names of hundreds of
people belonging to various countries of the world but it was a fact that legal proceeding had been only initiated in Pakistan.

Nawaz Sharif was not mentioned in Panama Papers.
He said Pakistani citizens had filed petition of corruption
in foreign funding against Pakistan Tehreek i Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan in High Court and Election Commission of Pakistan, adding Imran showed reluctance to appear before the court and ECP.
He urged PTI chief to face the cases in the court.
Replying to a question, he said legislation was being made
on National Accountability Bureau (NAB) laws to bring more transparency in the process.
Reforms should be made in police, FIA and FBR systems as well, he added.
He urged opposition parties to sit together with the government and give its valuable suggestions for the country’s welfare and progress.
