No end to Panamagate probe talks in sight


ISLAMABAD: If Syed Khursheed Shah is to be believed, there is every likelihood that ongoing talks between the government and the nine-party opposition bloc will drag on “for all eternity”, since the former is showing no interest in resolving the issues around Panamagate.

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Monday, the leader of the opposition said that though the opposition was all for moving ahead to formulate terms of reference (ToR) for the proposed Panama Papers commission, the government seems to be non-serious in this regard.

“Whether you like it or not, the [Panama Papers] issue has very much landed in the country; the sooner we resolve, the better it will be for the country,” the PPP leader said.

Mr Shah also mused, tongue in cheek, that the Panama Papers had caused heart problems to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and should be seriously approached by the government.
