No evidence regarding Panama Papers case available with opposition: Asif

ISLAMABAD, Nov 8 (Pakistan Point News - APP - 08th Nov, 2016 ) : Minister for Defence Khawaja Muhammad Asif on Tuesday said the opposition did not have any authentic evidence regarding Panama papers case. Speaking to a tv channel, he said if the members of the Parliament unanimously accept the bill on Panama Papers then the government would also accept it. He said the Parliament had played a pivotal role during the last Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) sit-ins.

The minister said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had presented himself for accountability on Panama Papers from day one. He said the opposition was trying to prolong the Panama Papers issue. He said Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) government had always respected the courts and their verdicts. Khawaja Asif said he had won five elections which were challenged by his opponents, but the courts had given decisions in his favor. Replying to a question, he said the credit of continuity of democracy during the last eight years goes to military leadership as they were supporting democracy in the country.
