ISLAMABAD: The commission probing the memo scandal was meeting on Thursday and parties involved in the case were presenting their concluding arguments, DawnNews reported.

Akram Shaikh, the counsel for Mansoor Ijaz, was expected to conclude his arguments today.

Today’s meeting of the commission headed by Justice Qazi Faez Issa heard the arguments presented by Shaikh.

Shaikh said that Husain Haqqani had failed to provide the commission with satisfactory responses on the charges levelled against him. He moreover said that Ijaz had presented his phone records as evidence supporting his claims, while Haqqani could not provide any evidence to prove his innocence.

Haqqani’s counsel, Zahid Bukhari, was expected to present his arguments tomorrow.

Previously, the Supreme Court ruled that the judicial commission probing the memo scandal could record Husain Haqqani’s testimony via video link from London.
