Panama Papers and Bahama Leaks are a matter of honesty, transparency and accountability, IMF chief Christine Lagarde said here on Tuesday, amidst demand for the resignation of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on corruption charges.
On the final day of her maiden two-day visit to Pakistan, the IMF Managing Director in her concluding press conference alongside Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said accountability and transparency was the right course forward for the country.
“And that is the best way to go forward whether it is Panama or Bahama or whatsoever,” she said in response to a question regarding alleged involvement of Pakistani leaders in Panama Papers scandal.
She said technological progress and access to information will make it impossible to run and hide, Dawn reported.
