Dishonour those in Panama and Paradise leak lists

Madhu Agrawal

EMAIL TO THE EDITOR

The system in India unfortunately lacks pace unlike in Pakistan where economic-offenders highlighted in the Panama leaks and now in the Paradise one have been punished. Several Indian TV news-channels evidently had no option other than to ignore the important news after their owners were distinguished to be placed in Paradise-paper leaks even when they claim to be against black money.

With names of influential ones from all sectors, including politics, finding a place on the leak lists, there is hardly any possibility of quick punishment of these offenders. The Central Government can at least do a little by dishonouring all those figured in Panama and Paradise paper leaks by instant taking away from them national honours, including Padma awards, till they are cleared of the offences.
