Ashraf’s Press Secretary Shafqat Jalil, however, said no meeting between Iqbal and the Premier was scheduled on Monday, the Dawn reports.
According to sources, the 400-page report contains the statements of over 300 people and references to over 7,000 letters and other documents relating to Osama bin Laden.
The commission’s chief said that the it examined over 1,500 witnesses, including, surviving members of the families of Osama and two Pakistani brothers who were protecting him.
It also examined secretaries of ministries, civilian officials concerned in Islamabad, and local officials, notables, neighbours, media personnel and military and intelligence personnel of Abbottabad, the chief said.
