ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Sunday weighed in on money laundering investigations using French economist’s quote.
The prime minister took his twitter and said, “The truth of saying of French economist Frédéric Bastiat is reflected clearly in the way money launderers are treated and the way they behave with indignation when questioned.”
“Fredric Bastiat had said when plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time, they create for themselves a legal system that authorize it and a moral code that glorifies it,” he tweeted.
