LAHORE: PPP senior leader Aitzaz Ahsan has said investigation into the Panama leaks issue should be initiated from the prime minister and his family before holding others accountable.   

“First of all the prime minsiter and his family members should be held accountable followed by all those whose names have appeared in Panama Papers. Nawaz Sharif had presented himself and his family for accountability, why the government is weeping now?” he asked while talking to media hereon Friday.

He said that according to the government ToRs, investigation will be started from 1947 and this way the government was planning to hold even Quad-e-Azam accountable.

He said that the ToRs worked out by opposition were unanimous. “The PM is accused and how come can he frame ToRs against himself.   The opposition rejects the government ToRs,” he said.

If government insisted on its ToRs, the opposition will do the same with increasing intensity, he said.
