Rehman Malik says only Pak interior ministry 'not Army, ISI' can provide security to Ijaz

Islamabad, Sun, 22 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 22 (ANI): Rehman Malik has that it is only Pakistan's interior ministry, and not the Army or the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) that would provide protection to the Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz during his upcoming visit to the country to testify over the Memo Gate scandal.


Malik stressed that the ISI is only an intelligence agency and not a security organization, the Daily Times reports.


However, he said: "If army's security is needed for someone, there is a constitutional way to arrange it."


Malik also said that Ijaz's name would be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) if the Parliamentary Committee investigating the memo scandal orders so.


"I cannot disobey directives of the committee," he said.


Malik said the parliamentary committee has summoned Ijaz for his testimony and "if he does not appear before it, the committee can direct the government to put his name on the ECL". (ANI)
