Broadsheet again exposed massive scale of ruling elites' corruption, money laundering: PM
January 13, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said on Wednesday to weigh in on “revelations” by UK asset recovery firm Broadsheet’s owner Kaveh Moussavi about Pakistani ruling elites “stashing ill-gotten gains abroad.”

The prime minister took his twitter and said, “Panama Papers exposed our ruling elites corruption & money laundering earlier. Now Broadsheet revelations have again exposed the massive scale of our ruling elites corruption & money laundering. These elites cannot hide behind “victimisation” card on these int revelations.”

“What do these revelations expose repeatedly? 1. Exactly what I have been saying i.n my 24-y[ea]r fight against corruption which is the biggest threat to Pak[istan]’s progress. 2. These elites come to power & plunder the country,” the prime minister said.

“3. They do money laundering to stash their ill-gotten gains abroad, safe from domestic prosecution. 4. They then use their political clout to get NROs. That is how they kept their plundered wealth safe. People of Pak[istan] are biggest losers.”

PM Khan said the government wants complete transparency from Broadsheet on elites’ money laundering and on who asked the firm to stop investigations.
