Memo Gate kingpin Ijaz met US envoys in Switzerland: State Department
Islamabad, Jan 24 (ANI): The US State Department has said that that Mansoor Ijaz, the key person in the Memo Gate scandal, met US envoys in Switzerland.
US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, however, refused to comment on details of the meetings, The News reports.
But she said that Ijaz was free to disclose all the details of his meetings with US envoys.
Yesterday, Ijaz's counsel Akram Shaikh expressed his dissatisfaction about the security measures adopted for his client's upcoming visit to Pakistan to testify in the Memo Gate issue, throwing in doubt whether he would come to the country at all.
Shaikh reportedly complained about the security measures after meeting with Inspector General (IG) of Police (IG) Islamabad Bin Yamin Khan.
On the advice of Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq, Shaikh met with the IG to discuss the issue of security to be provided to Ijaz.
Earlier on Sunday night, Shaikh had sent a second letter to the Attorney General in which he had requested for security details for his client.
The letter had expressed reservations over statements given by Interior Minister Rehman Malik and the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leaders Shazia Marri and Raja Riaz. (ANI)
