Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has said his government will investigate citizens linked to a massive leak on hidden global wealth.
The Pandora Papers link hundreds of Pakistanis, including members of Mr Khan’s cabinet, to wealth secretly moved through offshore companies.
They rank among history’s biggest financial leaks, exposing dealings of global business and political figures.
According to Pakistani media reports, more than 700 people in the country were named in the papers, among them two members of the cabinet.
Imran Khan will take a step to the Pakistanis exposed in Pandora Papers
Imran Khan Said
He “welcomed” the revelations in the papers. In 2016, before becoming prime minister, he spearheaded opposition demands to open an enquiry after offshore interests of the country’s elite were exposed in a previous leak, the Panama papers.
