The documentary trailer opens up with Kenyan journalist John-Allan Namu saying, “How it has been described is that there has been one rule for the elite especially the elite that is connected to power and other for everybody else, I think I will leave it at that.” He is followed by a quote by Frédéric Bastiat, a former member of the National Assembly of France.
Arshad Sharif is heard saying, “Accounts were opened in the name of these low-level low-wage employees who do not come into the tax net. Money used to be deposited in those accounts and finally, they used to land in the accounts of either Mr. Hamza Shahbaz, Mr. Salman Shahbaz, or Mr. Shehbaz Sharif himself. They said people used to come with gunmen into the banks.”
Irfan Hashmi calls London the second ‘house of Sharifs’. Another journalist also calls London “a money launderer’s paradise”.
The trailer of the documentary has been shared by PTI leaders including Fawad Chaudhry, Taimur Jhagra, Sayed Zulfi Bukhari, and others. The documentary has been directed by Michael Oswald and produced and written by Murtaza Mehdi.
