Kayani instructed Pasha to investigate Memo Gate scandal: Ijaz

London , Sat, 25 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 25 (ANI): Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz has said ISI chief Lt-Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha had told him that Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani had instructed him to investigate the Memo Gate scandal.


In his testimony before the judicial commission investigating the case, he said that General Pasha had told him during their four-hour meeting in London's Park Lane Intercontinental Hotel on October 22 that both he and Kayani were keen to ensure that the government completed its tenure, but they also wanted to get to the bottom of what the memo was all about.


"We then went through the information. I told him former ambassador (Husain) Haqqani was behind the memorandum. General Pasha read the memorandum in three or four minutes and demonstrated surprise and dismay, at times disgust and disappointment, over the content of the document," The Dawn quoted Ijaz, as saying.


"At the point during the meeting where he learned of the three US people I had approached to deliver the memorandum to Adm Mullen, he asked me how I knew each of them, how well and to briefly summarise my requests to them in terms of why, who was involved, under what authority and in which modality such delivery might take place with each person," he added.


Ijaz also alleged that after the May events, Haqqani had twice tried to delete the BBM (Blackberry message) chat from his cell phone.


"Haqqani twice changed his handsets because he knew that by changing the set and deleting me from his contacts' list the BBM chat data would automatically be removed," he added. (ANI)
