Pak SC allows Yasin Malik to record his statement before memo commission

Islamabad, Mon, 26 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 26 (ANI): The Pakistan Supreme Court commission probing the 'Memo Gate' scandal has granted Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Yasin Malik to record his statement before the commission.

A three-member bench, headed by Balochistan High Court Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa, resumed hearing the case today at the Islamabad High Court today.

Vital disclosures are expected from Malik, who had said that he would give details of his relationship with Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz when he appears before the commission.

Mansoor Ijaz, the central character of the memo case, had alleged that he had arranged a meeting for Yasin with C D Sahay, a former Indian intelligence chief.

Yasin Malik has accepted meeting with Mansoor Ijaz several times. Speaking to reporters upon his arrival at Islamabad earlier today, Yasin said that he would reveal details of the meetings before the commission.

In response to the allegations, Yasin had requested the SC to make him a party to the case, adding that he had come to the commission personally and had not hired any lawyer as there was "no need to lie."

The Kashmiri leader said he had nothing to hide and does not require any counsel who would do his job of turning lies into truth and truth into lies.

"God willing, truth will prevail," he said.

Petitioner to the memo case, Barrister Mohammad Zafarullah Khan objected to the Kashmiri leader being made a party to the proceedings, claiming that Yasin has no connection with the memo case and Malik's participation would serve to stretch the case. (ANI)
