Govt turns down opposition’s TORs of Panama commission

Nisar

ISLAMABAD: The government on Wednesday turned down opposition’s terms of reference (TORs) for the commission on Panama Papers leaks, while the interior minister said the terms lacked only one thing urging the opposition to form a Supreme Court (SC) of their own, ARY News reported.

Holding a presser in Islamabad today, Nisar said that instead of corruption the opposition aims to target a single person and the Panama leaks matter has fallen prey to passing statements against each other.

Urging the opposition to not dictate the SC on Panamagate, he assured the government will wholeheartedly accept the decision of the apex court.

The minister slammed opposition for putting the blame of everything on government, ‘from rain to scorching weather in the country’.

“By leveling allegations, the opposition wants to achieve political objectives and is not interested in inquiry,” he said. “I request them to let the truth come before the nation.”

They did not present suggestions and then said the government itself formulated TORs, Chaudhry Nisar said, lamenting that a few people accept SC’s decision only if it coincides their wishes.

He said that the prime minister and his family are ready to appear before the apex court, noting that the premier has vowed to go home if allegations against him were proven.

Meanwhile, Law Minister Zahid Hamid said it is the government which devises TORs and the commission will decide whether a violation of law was committed.
