FAISALABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday said that since Mansoor Ijaz was not a Pakistani citizen, he would have to apply for a visa if he wanted to come to Pakistan to appear before the judicial commission inquiring the Memogate case.
“Mansoor Ijaz is not a Pakistani and being a foreigner, he will have to apply for a visa if he wants to come to Pakistan to appear before the Memogate commission,” said Malik.
Talking to the media at the inauguration of a new passport office in Jaranwala, the interior minister said, “All visas are being issued after clearance by concerned security agencies. Media reports and allegations of some quarters and individuals that visas were issued to some Americans or others without security clearance and verification were wrong and mere allegations.”
