LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that due to the Panama Leaks, it was for the very first time that a Pakistani Prime Minister has been made answerable to the allegations against him.
In an exclusive interview with the British Channel 4 News, Khan reiterated his stance that an investigation commission for probing into the Panama Leaks should be headed by the Chief Justice of the country.
Imran Khan stated that before the Panama Leaks revelations, the rulers of the country used to say that these all the issues were only allegations by the Opposition. He added that PM Nawaz Sharif is facing the accusations of money laundering, tax evasion, corruption and not declaring his assets.
Khan further stated that he wants that an inquiry be held under the Chief Justice. In answer to a question, Khan stated that as a cricketer, he had earned money throughout the world, but all of his finances were in Pakistan, adding that he did not have any bank account in any foreign country.
The PTI chairman also stated that people are killed more by corruption than by terrorism. He stated that more than 35% of the children lose their lives each year for not having sufficient food.
In relation to London’s Mayorship campaign, Khan stated that he had encouraged Zac Goldsmith to step into politics. He added that Goldsmith would prove to be a good Mayor.
