Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the Broadsheet revelations have exposed the massive scale of our ruling elite's corruption and money laundering. He said that the [political] elite abuse power to plunder the country.

The premier took to Twitter to express these views. In a series of tweets, he said that the first Panama Papers and now Broadsheet has exposed the extent of the ruling elite's corruption and money laundering.

"Panama Papers exposed our ruling elites corruption & money laundering earlier. Now Broadsheet revelations have again exposed the massive scale of our ruling elite's corruption and money laundering. These elites cannot hide behind the "victimization" card on these int revelations," Khan said.

The prime minister added that these revelations are proof that the biggest threat to this country:

"What do these revelations expose repeatedly? 1. Exactly what I have been saying in my 24-yr fight against corruption which is the biggest threat to Pak's progress. 2. These elites come to power & plunder the country. 3. They do money laundering to stash their ill-gotten gains abroad, safe from domestic prosecution. 4. They then use their political clout to get NROs."

Khan said that in this never-ending cycle of corruption, the biggest losers are the people of Pakistan:

"That is how they kept their plundered wealth safe. People of Pak are the biggest losers: Not only is their nation's wealth stolen by the elites, their taxpayer money, paid for recovering this wealth, is wasted because of NROs. These revelations tip of the iceberg. We want complete transparency from Broadsheet on our elite's money laundering & on who stopped investigations."
