ISLAMABAD: The commission probing into the Memogate scandal resumed its hearing on Thursday, headed by Justice Faiz Esa at the Islamabad High Court.

Mansoor Ijaz’s counsel Akram Shaikh while cross-examining Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF),Yasin Malik, asked him if Malik was an Indian national and held an Indian passport.

The commission directed Bukhari to only question Malik about the allegations made by Ijaz and ask “relevant questions.”

Shaikh said that Malik had met Indian external intelligence agency The Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW) officials for which he had video records, which he will produce before the commission whenever it asks.

Malik, while snubbing the allegation said that he had never met any officials from any agencies and that he will undergo any penalty if proven wrong.

Former director-general Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Shuja Pasha is also present before the commission to get his statements recorded.

The commission will pen down his statement, while his counsel Ahsan Zafar will give statements before the court.

The commission expressed dissatisfaction over former ambassador to United States Hussain Haqqani’s appeal to adjourn the hearing.

Justice Esa told Haqqani’s counsel Zahid Bukhari that if his client was not well then he should not have taken up such an important duty [of an envoy].

He further said that earlier Haqqani had undertaken that he will appear before the commission within four days whenever he is summoned.
