LAHORE: Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique on Sunday said that Pakistan is only the country in the world taking the ‘Panama Papers’ seriously, as what he said, it has no ‘legal value’, ARY News reported.
Addressing an event in Lahore, Rafique decried the Panamagate investigation and said that the government is under attack since its formation for last four years in different forms of challenges.
Coming down hard on chairman Imran Khan, Rafique said that Khan campaigned for Panama papers by design to malign the Sharif family as result of botched attempt to harm the government by holding sit-ins back in 2014.
“Despite reservations, we appear before the court for the supremacy of law,” Rafique said, adding that no evidence of money laundering has been provided in the Panama case.
He accused the Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of recording telephonic conversation and making calls to family members. “They don’t explain who was behind the photo leak of Hussain Nawaz and the WhatsApp calls,” Rafique underlined.
