Supreme Court of Pakistan
The judicial commission probing the Memogate scandal began its proceedings today (Tuesday) as the four-week deadline given to it by the Supreme Court looms closer. During the proceedings, Interior Minister Rehman Malik was ordered to appear before the commission to respond to the ‘threatening’ statements he gave regarding Mansoor Ijaz’s visit to Pakistan. Following the order, Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq talked to Malik who said that he will appear before the commission today. The minister had earlier stated that Ijaz’s name will be put on the Exit Control List when he arrives.

Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) Director General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, who is also due to appear before the commission, had requested that he will record his statements in an in-camera briefing. Justice Qazi Faez Isa, heading the bench, inquired why Ijaz was not coming to Pakistan. Ijaz’s lawyer Akram Sheikh said that his client wanted to bring all proofs to the commission, but the interior ministry had threatened to place his name on the Exit Control List (ECL). Sheikh added that the army should be the focal point of Ijaz’s security in the country. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had earlier ruled out army security for Ijaz, saying that the government will not spend billions of rupees on a “dishonest” person. The Supreme Court had formed the judicial commission on December 30 last year and had given a four-week deadline to complete the investigations.
