ISLAMABAD
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has set up a high-level commission to probe Pakistanis named in leaked financial documents dubbed Pandora Papers.
In a couple of tweets on Monday, the information minister said, “The high-level cell under the Prime Minister’s Inspection Commission will investigate all individuals mentioned in the Pandora Papers and will present facts before the nation.”
The information minister also expressed concern about the disclosure of names of media house owners in Pandora Papers. “It is unfortunate that the names of the owners of all major media houses in Pakistan are included in Pandora leaks. The Ministry of Information is launching a transparent investigation into the matter and Pemra is being asked to respond,” he tweeted.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that the PM chaired a meeting attended by federal ministers and party leaders to review the country’s overall situation and discuss the matter of Pandora Papers. In the meeting, a committee comprising the Attorney General of Pakistan and federal ministers briefed the premier on the massive leaked financial documents.
The PM directed the authorities concerned to investigate the Pakistanis named in the leaked documents, saying that those who plundered the national wealth deserve no concession.
