ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to lobby against government and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the in the United Kingdom.

In this regard, the PTI has approached several members of the ruling Conservative and the opposition Labour party and other prominent politicians of Pakistan-origin.

The PTI leadership will meet the British leaders after Eid, where they would urge them to take action against those who have bought properties in the United Kingdom from money laundering and tax evasion in their country.

PTI President London Waheed-ur-Rehman has been assigned the responsibility to lobby against the government in the United Kingdom, and to convince the British government to introduce legislature which prohibits the purchase of property from corruption.

It may be realized that the PTI is facing disappointment for lack of progress over the Panama Papers in which the names of the family of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had surfaced linking their alleged ownership to offshore companies.

There are been inaction by the government over any inquiries in the matter, and a committee to develop ToRs has also reached a deadlock.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan has already warned that he would take to the streets if there is consensus reached over the inquiry committee.  Now it seems that the PTI has also scheduled to take its protests offshore as well to put more pressure on Nawaz Sharif.
