In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we take a look at the latest curve ball offered up in the saga that is now Mansoor Ijaz's trip to Pakistan.
Faisal Shakeel, Reporter for The Express Tribune based in Islamabad, says that Ijaz, following the advice from his counsel, has decided not to travel to Pakistan. However, this does not mean that Ijaz cannot still testify in the Memogate case.
Shakeel says a few options remain, as Ijaz can testify over video conference, or a delegate from the judicial commission can travel to either London or Zurich where they can record his testimony.
Shakeel says this may not have been necessary had the interior ministry included representatives of the army in the security planning for Mansoor Ijaz’s stay in Pakistan from the beginning.
