Imran Khan took to Twitter today to delineate the implications of the Broadsheet revelations, stating the ‘massive scale’ of money laundering and corruption being undertaken by the ruling elite. The Prime Minister asserted that these internal revelations no longer allow the perpetrators to hide behind ‘victimsation card’.
Imran Khan proceeded to highlight the details of the Broadsheet revelations, stating they were ‘exactly what I have been saying in my 24 year fight against corruption’.
“What do these revelations expose repeatedly? Exactly what I have been saying in my 24 year fight against corruption which is the biggest threat to Pakistan’s progress. These elites come to power and plunder the country. They do money laundering to stash their ill-gotten gains abroad, safe from domestic prosecution. They then use their political clout to get NROs. That is how they kept their plundered wealth safe,” the Prime Minister said.
“People of Pakistan are biggest losers: Not only is their nation’s wealth stolen by the elites, their taxpayer money, paid for recovering this wealth, is wasted because of NROs. These revelations are the tip of the iceberg. We want complete transparency from Broadsheet on our elites money laundering and on who stopped investigations,” he added.
