The names of 1, 400 Pakistanis are also on the list of the world’s richest persons who have accounts in Credit Swiss Bank, it has been learnt on Monday.

It has been learnt that some of these accounts owned by Pakistanis, which are now closed, were previously open. On an average, each Pakistani has over Rs841.3 million in his account.

It has also emerged that some of the accounts were opened right at the time when the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was investigating corruption charges against them.

Sunday, on February 20, 2022 it had been reported that following Panama Leaks, Paradise and Pandora Papers, a German newspaper had created a storm by leaking the data of over 100 billion dollars of the government officials, heads of intelligence agencies and controversial businessmen belonging to 128 countries stashed in a Swiss bank.

The man, leaking the data, first shared it with a German newspaper, which then forwarded it to Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, a non-profit organisation, and 46 other newspapers.
