PESHAWAR – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan claimed on Tuesday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government had offered him Rs10 billion to withdraw from the Panama Papers case.

Khan said if Sharif’s government had so much money at its disposal to make such an offer to a single person, one could only imagine how much it could have offered to the authorities investigating the Panama Papers case, while addressing a gathering of party leaders and workers after visiting the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital in Peshawar.

“All officials investigating the Panamagate case are under the government’s control. How can a proper investigation against the prime minister and his family and accountability be expected?” he questioned.

The PTI chief said Sharif had no further evidence to prove he was clean of corruption. He added that the PTI would now build pressure on the investigating authorities to stop them from protecting the prime minister and his family.

“We will not give up until the prime minister’s resignation.”

Khan also urged people to participate in his party’s protest rally being held in Islamabad on Friday to demand Sharif’s resignation.
