Saad Rafique labels Panama papers ‘foreign sponsored conspiracy’
Talking to newsmen, here on Saturday the politician claimed that the explosive report by the six-member Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT) will be challenged in the apex court adding that he has advised the party leadership to avail constitutional protection.
Regarding a question as to when will the first family move apex court to challenge the report, the minister expressed ignorance.
The legislator maintained that many people in this world do not want to see a powerful Pakistan.
'Those who compare atomic power Pakistan to Iceland are foolish,' he remarked referring to the prime minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson who tendered resignation in the wake of Panama papers.
“We are ready to fight [this] legal and political war. This kind of war will benefit no one,” he lamented, adding that the government was focusing on progress but its political rivals were dragging Pakistan backwards.
The lawmaker observed that methods such as rigging allegations, dharna 1 and dharna 2 were used to waste time.
“It would have been better if political parties had instead focused on performance to get ahead,” he continued.
