ISLAMABAD: Mansoor Ijaz, the central character behind the memogate scandal, on Thursday submitted his statement to the Supreme Court, DawnNews reported.

Nine petitions, along with one filed by Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, on memogate are being heard in the apex court.

The petitions had made President Asif Ali Zardari, Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani, Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Ahmed Shuja Pasha and Husain Haqqani party to the case.

Ijaz was the second person after former ambassador to United States Husain Haqqani to submit his statement before the court.

Haqqani had submitted his reply in the court last Friday.

Sources said Ijaz submitted an 81-page statement through an e-mail. In his statement, Ijaz not only confirmed his meeting with Pasha in London on Oct 22 but also gave details of the meeting, sources said.
