LAHORE: Following the Panama Pares expose which has brought Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family under the scanner, the premier is firm and resolute to clear the names of his three children from charges of money laundering and tax evasion.

Quarters close to the Prime Minister’s office told Dawn that Sharif was in no mood to waste any time, whether it is through the judicial commission he had announced earlier this month, or some other forum: the government intends to complete the task sooner rather than later.

The Prime Minister’s aides also told the national daily, that if an agreement cannot be reached with opposition parties over the formation of a judicial commission, the option of a joint parliamentary committee could also be utilised.

According to the media wing of the Prime Minister’s office, the prime minister spent the day in the family wing of the PM’s Office after his return from London.

According to the Panama leads, Hassan Nawaz Sharif, Hussain Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz Sharif are the legal beneficiaries of the offshore companies set up in British Virgin Islands.
