Bukhari, while presenting proof to the commission, said that Haqqani was not forced to resign from his post but had submitted the resignation himself.

He added that according to the statement submitted by former US national security adviser General (r) James Jones, Mansoor Ijaz did not mention Haqqani even once.

Justice Esa ordered his assistant to contact Ijaz’s lawyer, Akram Sheikh asking him to present Ijaz’s BlackBerry sets to the commission.
