LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker, Hamza Shehbaz, on Friday, served a defamation notice to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief, Imran Khan, for claiming the ruling party had offered him Rs10 billion to stay mum on the Panama Papers scandal days after his father Punjab Chief Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, had sent a similar notice to the cricketer-turned-politician.

The notice, a copy of which is available with The Express Tribune, was sent through Advocate Azam Nazeer Tarar. Referring to the PTI chief’s claim, it said: “The statement that our client [Hamza] had directly made an offer of payment of Rs10 billion to you to back off from pursuing the case of Panama Leaks, is absolutely false.”
