KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Monday said instead of facilitating investigation into Panama Papers revelations, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is blocking every attempt to protect himself.

The PPP chairman took an exception to prime minister as he shared a news item on Twitter that reported  Mr Sharif is seeking  disqualification of petitions submitted against him by opposition parties in light of the Panama Papers leak, a reference to world’s largest data leak of tax documents.

According to the report , In an application filed with the Election Commission of Pakistan the Prime Minister termed allegations levelled by four opposition parties against him as “baseless”, saying he has no association with any offshore company mentioned in Panama Papers.
