While Prime Minister Imran Khan kept on claiming to make a new Pakistan free of corruption, his inner circle secretly moved millions of dollars offshore.
Several PTI cabinet members are among 700 Pakistanis named in the Pandora Papers, an investigation uncovering financial secrets held by high-profile individuals across the world.
The expose’s findings were released Sunday night, and among prominent Pakistanis, Minister for Finance Shaukat Tarin; Minister for Water Resources Moonis Elahi; Senator Faisal Vawda; PML-N leader Ishaq Dar’s son, Ali Dar; PPP’s Sharjeel Memon; the family of Minister for Industries and Production Khusro Bakhtiar; and PTI leader Abdul Aleem Khan have been named, with alleged links to offshore companies.
Some retired army officials, businessmen — including Axact’s CEO Shoaib Sheikh — and media company owners, have also been named in the leaks.
It must be noted that establishing and declaring an offshore company, which is not involved in any illegal practices, is permissible by law.
