Accountability of Sharifs unlikely without passage of Panama Papers bill: Bilawal

Karachi—Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said accountability of the ‘Sharifs’ is unlikely unless a bill on Panama Papers sails through the Parliament.
The bill moved by Bilawal’s PPP seeks to provide a legal process for inquiries into the trans-national and trans-jurisdictional secret transfers and deposits of vast sums and resources by persons whose names have been disclosed in the leaks of the Panama Papers and by their family members. The propose law is designed to facilitate the State, to uncover all funds, assets and properties” parked in foreign lands.
Bilawal had threatened to launch a movement against the federal government if his four demands were not met.
Bilawal’s four demands are to implement the resolution regarding China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), to re-constitute a parliamentary committee on national security, to pass Panama Bill drafted by Pakistan People’s Party and to immediately appoint the foreign minister. According to media reports, Bilawal will be moving to Lahore for reorganizing the party till the next elections. He has called for a Open Workers Convention in Bilawal House Lahore on 30th November on account of his party’s foundation day in Lahore.
The PPP chairman will start contacting leaders from other opposition parties before 27th December in order to have them on board for the party’s protest against Sharif’s.—NNI
