Memo commission disposes pleas of Zahid Bukhari


The memo tribunal on Thursday disposed of three applications of Hussain Haqqani’s lawyer Zahid Bukhari, seeking permission to be allowed him to visit London for cross examination of Mansoor Ijaz, and forensic evidences and a verified copy of Mansoor Ijaz’s testimony be provided to him before cross examination.
The three-judge commission headed by Balohchistan High Court Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa resumed the hearing here to record testimony of Mansoor Ijaz, main character of memogate controversy.
Qazi Isa ruled that a copy of Ijaz testimony be provided to Bukhari and remarked he could cross examine the witness through video link. The commission head deposed of the third plea saying issuing a visa was not his discretion.


  1. If the Commission can obtain visa for its Secretary, why can't it take responsibility for Zahid Bukhari & his teams visas? Our Judges have fallen to a new low after restoration of what was supposed to be independent judiciary. Surely, Hussain Haqqani is not being provided fair opportunity whereas the the three Chief Justices comprising Commission are ready to bow respectfully to all unreasonable demands of Mansoor Ijaz.

  2. Mr Shahid Malik has made a very reasonable case of evident prejudice against Haqqani. The Commission seems determined to bring in a guilty verdict against the man, just to please the Army as well as Nawaz Sharif. This is very unfair.
