Ijaz Wants To Come To Pakistan On The Assurance Of Chief Justice
The US businessman at the center of the memo scandal has written an email to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry.
A private News Channel has received details of that email in which Ijaz writes that he is willing to come to Pakistan if he is provided assurance by the Chief Justice.
Ijaz has however placed a condition that he will come to Pakistan on one flight record his statement then leave on the next flight out.
The US businessman fears that if comes to Pakistan he might be stuck in the country for one year and his business and family would be severely affected.
Ijaz further writes in the email that he was the one who had given the proposal to lift travel restrictions on Husain Haqqani because “it shouldn’t be the case that one person was under restrictions while the other was free.”
He goes on to write that if the commission was to record his statement abroad then it was necessary for Haqqani to also be present.
Mansoor Ijaz adds that he had been receiving threats from Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
