Global Witness response to Panama Papers verdict against Pakistan's prime minister Nawaz Sharif

The Panama Papers shone a light into a dark world of corruption. It’s great to see such a powerful individual held to account but the system that made this possible is still going strong. When these leaks first came out the UK government promised to clean up the property market to show the world that ‘there is no home for the corrupt in Britain’ - it’s time they made good on that promise. - Naomi Hirst, Senior Campaigner at Global Witness
