Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz, the key respondent in the Memogate scandal, has been receiving threatening messages from unknown numbers of kidnapping and killing his daughter, sources told Express News.
The threats were sent as messages to the cell phone of Ijaz’s son.
The US police took the cell phone in order to trace the numbers that were sending the threats, and launched an investigation into the matter.
Ijaz had earlier claimed to have received several death threats himself after he announced that he would travel to Pakistan to appear before the judicial commission inquiring into the Memogate scandal.
Fearing for his life, Ijaz refused to come to Pakistan and is currently being cross-questioned in London by a judicial panel of the commission.
