Pak SC orders probe into memogate
Islamabad: Pakistan`s Supreme Court today
ordered the setting up of judicial commission to probe the
memo scandal, media reports said.
The commission will be headed by the chief justice of the
Balochistan High Court, a newspaper reported.
The Supreme Court also ordered the three-member commission
to complete the investigation in four weeks.
The memogate scandal pertains to a memo delivered by
Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz to the Pentagon
with a plea for US help to stave off a feared military coup
after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May.
The court`s ruling came after a series of petitions was
filed before it seeking a probe into the scandal.
While the government had opposed such a probe, the
powerful military as well as the ISI wanted an investigation.
