Pakistan is not among the countries who sought assistance in response to German police offer in July that they have bought the Panama Papers and are willing to assist, said Bastian Obermayer, the German investigative journalist, who is one of the reporters who unearthed the Panama Papers scandal.

Bastian has termed the indifference demonstrated by Pakistan as sad and ridiculous in his twitter message.

Germany’s Federal Crime Office(BKA) said in July it had obtained a copy of the leaked data known as the Panama Papers that last year revealed how offshore firms are used to stash the wealth of the world’s rich and powerful.

Some 11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were leaked to a German newspaper in 2016 and reports were published in cooperation with the U.S.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

Pakistan's prime minister Nawaz Sharif lost his job on July 28 as Supreme Court disqualified him from holding the office in a landmark decision in Panama Papers case.
