Pak Govt`s Abbottabad commission crashes even before taking off

Some members of the commission have doubts about their role in probe body.

Lahore: With some members of the Abbottabad commission expressing their doubts about their role in the probe body, its continuance is somewhat threatened.

The commission has been appointed by Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to probe intelligence lapses and all aspects of the US Navy Seals operation that killed Osama bin Laden in a May 02 raid on his Abbottabad compound.

Supreme Court Judge Javed Iqbal said he has no objection to heading the commission, but pointed out that he would have to take permission from Pakistan`s Chief Justice Iftikar Ahmed Chaudhary after receiving the official notification, The Daily Times reports.

Another commission member, retired Judge Fakhruddin G Ibrahim, refused to be a part of the probe body. According to sources, Ibrahim had doubted his abilities in a letter to Gilani.

He also said he had some reservations over the composition of the commission.
