The commission probing into the Memogate scandal finalised on Monday its report after 23 days of proceedings and directed its secretary to forward the findings to the Supreme Court.
The scandal started when Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz claimed in May last year of having received a message from then Pakistan’s ambassador to US Husain Haqqani to deliver a confidential memo to Admiral Mike Mullen asking for US assistance against a possible military takeover of the civilian government.
The commission, comprising three provincial chief justices, told a media briefing that its findings had been finalised and secretary Raja Jawad Abbas has been directed to forward the report to the Supreme Court.
The commission also thanked former attorney general of Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq, Deputy Attorney General Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri, legal counsels of both parties and the staff of the Islamabad High Court.
