No cooperation from opposition for Panama Leaks probe

ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that the government is keen to take the Panama Leaks probe to a logical conclusion but the opposition parties are making hurdles in the way.

He said that the Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif was the first to react on the Panama Papers Leaks and sincerely wanted to resolve the issue but the opposition did not want to cooperate in this regard.

He blamed the opposition to use the issue for making a political disturbance in the country.

He said that on the demand of the opposition, the government had written a letter to the Chief Justice of the Pakistan Supreme Court to form a judicial commission to probe the Panama Leaks issue but some parties asked to discuss it in the Parliament.

The Interior Minister said that some parties wanted it to be probed on media.

Amir Khan would join British greats with Alvarez win - Hatton

LONDON: Amir Khan will have to produce one of the greatest displays ever seen by a British boxer if he is to beat WBC middleweight champion Saul Alvarez in Las Vegas on Saturday, according to Ricky Hatton.

The 29-year-old, like fellow Briton Hatton a former light-welterweight world champion, has moved up two weight divisions - putting on the best part of 10 kilos - to take on flame-haired Mexican Alvarez, whose only defeat in 48 fights came against Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2013.

Khan is a huge underdog against Alvarez, nicknamed Canelo (the Spanish word for cinnamon) because of his hair, but Hatton believes he could pull off an upset.

"It´s a big ask. He has the tools to do it and I hope he does it, but it´s a massive, massive ask to keep out of trouble for 12 rounds against Alvarez who has improved so much since the Mayweather fight," Hatton told Reuters.

"If he does pull it off, going from welterweight to middleweight and winning the title, it would be one of the best wins in British boxing history I think. "Hatton knows firsthand the dangers of moving up a weight.

He suffered his first career defeat when Mayweather knocked him out in a WBC welterweight world title bout in Las Vegas in 2007 and was never the same fighter again.

According to the 37-year-old Hatton, who is now a boxing promoter having hung up his gloves in 2012, Khan must not get involved in a slug fest with the more powerful Alvarez and use his superior movement to stay out of trouble?

"It´s a fight that I didn´t think would be made," said Hatton, whose stable includes upcoming British heavyweight Nathan Gorman.

"Amir always has good fights, but he needs to make this one boring.

"If he tries to have a go with this lad, I don´t think he needs me to tell him, he needs to use his speed, move, move.

The moment he stops moving those feet, he will be in trouble because Alvarez is a big puncher.

"Hatton´s concern is that by putting on some extra pounds to move up, Khan may have slowed down for what will be his first fight in a year since beating American Chris Algieri.

"I don´t think it´s the hand speed. It´s the foot speed. Amir is not a fighter like Mayweather, he is more straight backed. "He has to use his feet to be defensive.

ICE removes Pakistani who conspired to launder proceeds of terrorist financing

DALLAS: (Raja Zahid A Khanzada) Officers with U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), turned over to authorities in Islamabad today Saifullah Anjum Ranjha, 53, a Pakistani national and former D. C. business owner who served the last eight years in federal prison for conspiring to launder money and concealing terrorist financing.

Ranjha’s removal was carried out by ICE as a “high profile removal”, a special designation given to aliens living in the United States, who are engaged in or suspected of supporting terrorism, and/or is a direct threat to our country’s national security.

Last year ICE removed or returned 235,413 individuals; 165,935 were apprehended while, or shortly after, attempting to illegally enter the United States. The remaining 69,478 were apprehended in the interior of the United States, and the vast majority of these individuals were convicted criminals who fell within ICE's civil immigration enforcement priorities.

Ranjha, owned homes in the District and Maryland and had been living in the United States as a lawful permanent resident since 1997. In 2008 he pleaded guilty to money laundering more than $2.2 million; which he believed to be the proceeds of illegal activities conducted by al-Qaida, including drug trafficking and weapons smuggling.

An investigation revealed he used his own money remitter business, Hamza Inc., to launder the funds internationally through an informal money transfer system called a “hawala.” Ranjha departed the United States on Monday from San Antonio Texas International Airport in Texas under escort by deportation officers from ERO San Antonio. Upon his arrival in Pakistan, he was turned over to authorities there at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad.
