Lahore : Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the future of the country and the nation was linked with the court decision in the Panama leaks case.
Talking to the media in Islamabad on Friday, he said that the Panama leaks was not an issue related to any party or individual, it was an issue of the entire nation. He said that the Prime Minister’s family had failed to provide proof its assets and was adopting delaying tactics. However, he said, that the ruling family was getting deeper into the mire of the Panama leaks day by day.
Sirajul Haq said that the Supreme Court had termed NAB as facilitator of the corrupt while highly paced ruling party men including Federal Interior Minister and the Punjab Chief Minister had expressed their reservations over the NAB’s provision for Plea bargain. However, he said, the rulers were not willing to delete the provision.
He said the NAB Chairman who had been appointed by the Prime Minister with the consent of the Leader of the Opposition was not ready to speak against the corruption of the Premier. As such, he said, eliminating corruption through the NAB would remain a dream unless NAB was made an autonomous body above political interference.
The JI chief counseled the government to present the record of the off- shore companies and admit facts with an open heart instead of trying to hide facts.
