ISLAMABAD - The judicial commission appointed by the Supreme Court on Friday announced it had completed the proceedings to probe memogate scandal, while the completion of a comprehensive report would take some time. "The commission has completed its proceedings today. We will hold an in-camera session soon, after which a comprehensive fact-finding report would be prepared to be submitted before the apex court”, head of the panel Qazi Faez Essa said, adding that only an in-camera hearing was to be held.

The three-member commission resumed hearing on Friday at the Islamabad High Court. Raja Jawad, the secretary of judicial commission which is mandated to probe the memogate, recorded his statement under oath along with a forensic report of Mansoor Ijaz' Blackberry handset. Raja Jawad said ten companies were contacted to carry out forensic test of Mansoor Ijaz' blackberry sets and laptops, adding that suitable forensic experts were hired to conduct examination, following evaluation of quality standards and ‘the price to hire services’.

He added that only he and the experts were present during forensic inspection, which lasted for eight hours. Mansoor Ijaz had requested to keep record of his blackberry handsets and laptop secret. “We did not break his trust", Raja Jawad told the commission. On Friday, Zahid Hussain Bokhari, the counsel for obvious traitor Hussain Haqqani, did not appear before the commission. Barrister Akram Sheikh, while quoting some media reports, told the judicial panel that Zahid had refused to appear before the commission. It prompted Justice Qazi Faez Essa to remark that the commission did not believe in media reports; however, Bokhari did not give any application to the commission on the subject.

"Zahid Bokhari has not formally informed the commission about not appearing before the commission. We cannot trust the media reports in this regard." Raja Jawad said both Mansoor Ijaz and Husain Haqqani had been notified of the forensic examination, adding that he had issued ordered for in-camera hearing likely to be held after arrival of the foreign secretary, pertaining to the usage of secret funds by Haqqani during his tenure as ambassador to the USZ. During the proceedings, Barrister Zafarullah requested the commission to finalise the report. "The commission is in possession of enough record and it should finalise its report now."
