Pakistan's Finance Minister, Mohammad Ishaq Dar, has directed the Federal Board of Revenue to approach the tax authorities of nine territories about information in the Panama and Bahamas leaks.

Pakistan is to seek information from Anguilla, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, Jersey, Mauritius, Niue, Panama, Samoa, and Seychelles. He said it will seek information about the bank accounts, business assets, and investments of Pakistani nationals and entities named in the leaks.

Nisar Muhammad, the Chairman of the FBR, informed Dar at a October 18 meeting that the FBR has already issued notices to those named in the leaks.
