Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Thursday offered 'adequate security' to Mansoor Ijaz if he comes to Punjab to record his statement in the Memogate scandal. 

Talking to Express News, Sharif said that he will take personal responsibility of providing complete security to Ijaz during his visit to Pakistan.

He said that he will welcome Ijaz and will provide him security till the last moment he is in Pakistan, and also offered the judicial commission probing the controversial memo to come to the province to record Ijaz's statements.

Ijaz has repeatedly refused to visit Pakistan citing security reasons despite several assurances as the judicial commission summoned him over and over again. The parliamentary committee probing the issue gave him a final deadline of February 10 to appear before the committee.
