ICIJ had received more than 11.9 million documents

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) –International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has said that Pandora Papers contain no suggestion that Prime Minister Imran Khan owned offshore companies.

ICIJ has stated that however, Imran Khan’s inner circle, including cabinet ministers, their families and major financial backers have secretly owned an array of companies and trusts holding millions of dollars of hidden wealth.

“Among those whose holdings have been exposed are Khan’s finance minister, Shaukat Fayaz Ahmed Tarin, and his family, and the son of Khan’s former adviser for finance and revenue, Waqar Masood Khan. The records also reveal the offshore dealings of a top PTI donor, Arif Naqvi, who is facing fraud charges in the United States”, the report added.

ICIJ had received more than 11.9 million documents containing 2.94 terabytes worth of confidential information from service providers who helped set up and manage offshore companies and trusts in tax havens around the world.
