Real democracy had been displayed in Iceland: Imran Khan
15 April, 2016
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan said on Thursday the (spirit of) real democracy had been displayed in Iceland, where its prime minister resigned immediately after his offshore companies were exposed in Panama Papers.
Similarly, he said, British Prime Minister David Cameron was himself explaining his position in the House of Commons.
Mr Khan was talking to reporters shortly before his departure to London with PTI leaders Jahangir Tareen and Abdul Aleem at the Lahore airport.
According to some TV channels, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar was also travelling on the same flight.
The PTI chief said that both the government and the opposition were busy defending corruption of their leaders which had been revealed in Panama Papers. “This time, no corrupt will be allowed to go scot-free as it is a golden chance for Pakistanis to expose rulers’ corruption, who are looting national wealth and buying palaces abroad, and hold them accountable.”
Mr Khan said the PTI had started contacting forensic companies in London in a bid to expose “rulers’ corruption” and added that the companies would be paid their fees by overseas Pakistanis.
