The Senate and National Assembly will meet separately at the Parliament House in Islamabad today. Both the Houses will debate important national issues besides legislative business.

The motion came when International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is set to release today thousands of more documents of the Panama Papers.

Omar Cheema, a senior journalist associated with ICIJ, says the fresh list features more than 400 Pakistanis owning offshore companies.

ICIJ will put the digital cache of documents online. The searchable database will be released at 1800 GMT today, accessible to the public at offshoreleaks.icij.org. – Samaa/Agencies
