Islamabad: Pakistani-American businessman, Mansoor Ijaz, who is at the centre of the Memogate controversy has been granted visa to travel to Pakistan to testify before a judicial panel.
As per reports, he was issued a visa from the Pakistan embassy in Bern, Switzerland. He will arrive on January 24.
Ijaz was summoned on Jan 16 but he deferred his travel plans to Pakistan, citing security reasons.
Mansoor Ijaz had been summoned by the panel to explain his allegation that he was asked to carry a memo on behalf of the Pakistan government seeking the help of a top US military official to avert a coup in the aftermath of the killing of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May 2011.
The commission comprises chief justices from the Balochistan, Sindh and Islamabad High Courts.
Ijaz had alleged that it was at the behest of the former Pakistan envoy to Washington Hussain Haqqani that he took the memo to the US military official.
