ISLAMABAD: BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) has said that it cannot provide records of Husain Haqqani’s conversations with Mansoor Ijaz because its database only stores information for last 90 days, Express News reported on Tuesday.
The judicial commission probing the memogate scandal had asked Haqqani to write a letter of consent to RIM, allowing them to access his account to extract records of his conversations with Ijaz, the self-proclaimed whistle-blower of the Memogate scandal.
“Yes, Haqqani has formally written to RIM to waive his privacy in compliance with the commission’s orders,” Zahid Bukhari, the attorney for Haqqani, had told The Express Tribune.
He said his client has given full authority to RIM to email the data either to him (Haqqani) or to his email account, since RIM’s policy forbids sending data to a third party.
Commission rejects Haqqani’s adjournment application
The Judicial Commission had also rejected Haqqani’s adjournment application. The commission further directed the government to ascertain a list of his property details and submit it before the court by April 26.
