Mansoor Ijaz asks commission to record his statement abroad

Memo scandal’s central character Mansoor Ijaz has requested the judicial commission probing the controversy to appoint a commissioner to record his statement abroad. Akram Sheikh, counsel of the Pakistani-American businessman, on Tuesday submitted an application before the memo commission’s secretary in which Ijaz stated that he had cancelled his trip to Pakistan due to security threats. Ijaz said that a commissioner be appointed to record his statement in Dubai or London. Sheikh said his client was ready to come to Pakistan, but had changed his plan due to security reasons and wanted to record his statement abroad. The memo commission will resume hearing the case at the Islamabad High Court on Thursday (tomorrow).

    It was alleged by GHQ & ISI that Memo was a matter of national security. It is no ordinary case. The application for appointment of local commissioner is like making fun of our national security. Akram Shekh, despite whatever fee he charged Mnasoor Ijaz, should at least demonstrate some loyalty to Pakistan and ask his client to come to Pakistan so that he could be properly cross-examined. Whatever be the high claims of legal profession, the basic defect in this western system is that anybody can throw a few coins towards a lawyer and he will start speaking whatever his client tells him to. The claim of assisting the Court is baseless. They would plead any rascal's case for money.
    The fact is that Memo was sensationalised by GHQ & ISI to get Haqqani's resignation. They already got it. So, they are not interested. Plus they fear Mansoor Ijaz because he is going to wash their dirty linen before the Commission. It is sad that in this matter, Media, Politicians and Judiciary also got on board because of their hatred against present government. Now, everybody has eggs on their faces.
