Rehman Malik assures memo Commission of giving high-level security to Ijaz in Pakistan

Islamabad, Tue, 24 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 24 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has assured the commission investigating the Memo Gate scandal that he would provide high-level security to Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz on his arrival in Islamabad, and would not put his name on the Exit Control List (ECL).


Malik appeared before the commission in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) building to explain his "controversial" statements pertaining to the scandal.


Chairman of the commission Justice Qazi Faez Issa said Malik was summoned because he was intervening in the commission's affairs and had therefore summoned him to explain his position.


"The commission has ordered the interior minister to appear before the commission today and explain his statements about Mansoor Ijaz's security," The Dawn quoted Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq, as saying.


Malik told the commission that he never mentioned Ijaz's name in his statements, putting the blame on the media for misquoting him.


On being asked why he didn't issue a denial, Malik said he was a busy person and did not have enough time to go through newspapers.


He informed the commission that he had directed his media co-coordinators to issue a denial. (ANI)
