Haqqani's counsel leveled unfounded allegation against my lawyer: Ijaz
Islamabad, Jan 14 (ANI): Mansoor Ijaz, a Pakistani-American businessman, who is the main figure in the "Memo Gate" scandal, has said that the counsel representing Husain Haqaani levelled unfounded allegations against his lawyer Akram Sheikh.
According to Zahid Bukhari, the lawyer of Haqqani, Akram Sheikh had told Ijaz that the former Pakistan ambassador was behind all the threats, being received by his client, The News reports.
Ijaz refuted Bukhari's claims terming the allegations as unfounded and non-serious.
Haqqani had earlier submitted an application to the memo investigation commission, accusing Ijaz's lawyer of making false allegations regarding threats to the life of his client.
Insisting that the claims were fabricated and intended to malign him, he said that threatening emails had neither been sent by him nor on his behalf to Ijaz.
"I am a law-abiding citizen and this exercise is only to unnecessarily invoke my name and amounts to creating a false impression," Haqqani said in the application.
He further requested the commission to take notice and issue an appropriate order on the matter.
However, Advocate Sheikh denied that he had attributed the threats to Haqqani. (ANI)
