ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will today (Thursday) attend the session of National Assembly and present his party’s stance on Panama Papers issue.

According a statement, a meeting PTI’s parliamentary party was held in Islamabad, where all members unanimously decided to take up the matters related offshore companies in today’s session of the National Assembly.
