Axact was a no brainer - everything on the formation of that company was based on “legal” fraud.

Investigations were conducted by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) – an ensemble of 600 journalists from 150 media outlets in 117 countries.
How many Pakistanis among those? Because these consortiums pass the files relating to Pakistan to Pakistani journalists same goes for all the countries.

You loved the Panama papers by ICIJ . In fact PTI may not be power without them.
You jailed a PM and many others using them
Now when some of the mud sticks to the current lot you start with the Lifafa journalists.
These investigations were more than a year and took thousands of man hours
