Pak national security committee summons Kayani, Pasha over Memo Gate probe
Islamabad, Dec 22(ANI): Pakistan's National Security Committee has decided to summon the country's Army Chief ,General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and spy chief Lt. General Ahmad Shuja Pasha to present their viewpoints on the Memo Gate scandal.
The move sought to dispel claims that the body was too weak to probe a high-profile case.
It is, however, not unclear when both individuals would appear before the committee.
The panel, which is chaired by Senator Raza Rabbani, also decided to call former ambassador Husain Haqqani for probing the scandal
Rabbani added that the panel had requested Pakistan Attorney General Maulvi Anwar-ul Haq to send all documentation in connection with the probe.
Sources who attended the meeting told The Express Tribune that the panel said that any individual and institution, irrespective of their power or position, could be summoned in connection with the Memo Gate scandal.
The committee was set up after Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani ordered a probe into Memo Gate scandal.
Rabbani stressed the panel would continue probe into the issue irrespective of the Pakistan Supreme Court's decision.
Rabbani clarified that Pakistan Muslim League-N members did not attend the meeting because the party is a petitioner in the apex court. (ANI)
