ISLAMABAD: After Mansoor Ijaz refused to come to Pakistan, Husain Haqqani filed an application before the commission investigating the memo scandal, requesting it to cancel Ijaz's right to give a statement in the case, DawnNews reported.

A lawyer of the former envoy to the United States submitted the application here today, saying that Ijaz didn’t show up before the commission despite several requests.

The application said that Ijaz was given two chances to record his statement before the commission and for the purpose he was facilitated in obtaining the visa.

However, Ijaz refused to come to Pakistan citing bogus security concerns, the application further contended.
