It may be mentioned that Panama Papers leaked in April 2016 claimed that a network of secret offshore deals worth $2bn laid a trail to Russian President Vladimir Putin though name of Putin did not appear in any of the records but names of his friends were in Panama Papers.

Name of Chinese President was also not in record of Panama Papers Leaks but the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that published papers claimed that close relatives of seven current or former Chinese leaders had been found to have links to offshore firms including the names of family members of the Chinese President, Xi Jinping.

The situation is identical in Pakistan where name of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not in Panama Papers but of his two sons and his daughter.

Sharif presented himself for accountability and provided record of money that was used for purchases of properties in England.

Imran Khan is one of the opposition leaders in Parliament of Pakistan having over 30 seats.
