By Muhammad Luqman
Pakistan’s Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is examining the Paradise Leaks papers, said a spokesperson of the organization on Monday.
Names of 135 Pakistani nationals, including former prime minister Shaukat Aziz are part of these papers made public on Sunday.
Pakistanis, whose names have appeared in the latest data dump of financial papers, will be issued a notice in the regard.
The spokesperson added that the list of names is too long and all those Pakistani nationals named in the papers will be investigated.
The Paradise Papers is a database comprising around 13.4 million documents, that reveals over 25000 companies owned by the world’s rich and influential individuals.
The documents were obtained from two companies in Singapore and Bermuda by a German newspaper and shared with the ICIJ. A major part of the Panama Papers comprises leaked files from company ‘Appleby’.
The files reveal data of over 25,000 companies owned by individuals from 180 countries, from 1950 to 2016.
