Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's conversation with US President-elect Donald Trump cannot "save him" from the Panama Papers scandal.
According to a report in ‘Dawn’, Imran said that while it was good news that Trump spoke to Sharif, the chat will do no favour to the premier in the Panamagate case.
The PTI chairman also said that Sharif could not be saved from the Panama Papers scandal "even if a Trump letter arrived".
“Good news is Trump spoke to Nawaz Sharif. Bad news for NS is this won't save him from Panama scandal - not even if a Trump letter arrived!” Imran Khan tweeted.
He was referring to a letter by Qatari prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani in connection with the Panamagate case.
In the letter, the Qatari royal had described his father’s business ties with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's family and his involvement in the London apartments that are at the centre of the Panama Papers controversy.
