Islamabad, Jan 16 (ANI): Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz has threatened the country's former ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani that he will come to Pakistan to appear before a judicial commission probing the Memo gate scandal to "expose all his lies".
"Dream on Haqqani. I am coming to Pakistan. And I am going to tell a truth which you will no longer be able to hide from," he wrote in a message released by his office.
I will tell it with such clarity and vigour that you and your brilliant legal team will find no space to run from it," The Dawn quoted Ijaz, as saying.
In an article he wrote for the Financial Times in October, Ijaz calimed that Haqqani had given him an unsigned memo for the then US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen, seeking US help to counter a possible coup following Osama bin Laden's elimination.
"I welcome your cross-examination. I look forward to ensuring the untruths, half-truths and whole lies that have been told thus far are clarified in front of the people of Pakistan so that truth and transparency become the enduring legacy for government that is of the people, for the people and by the people," Ijaz wrote in his latest rejoinder to statements from Haqqani and his lawyers.
Ijaz said that he continued to receive threats aimed at preventing him from appearing before the judicial commission that is probing the memogate scandal.
"These threats were sent to the same email address I used to communicate the original draft of the memorandum in question," he wrote.
He also claimed that Haqqani had orchestrated a media campaign against him since his resignation in November to introduce doubts and exploit the complexities of this case "that were entirely designed by him with, according to him, authority from his 'boss'". (ANI)
