The commission on Memogate wants Mansoor Ijaz’s presence before it while a few others are interested in his not being there. All sorts of delaying tactics and impediments are being created for him not to travel to Pakistan such as issuance of visa, not guaranteeing his safety and security while in Pakistan and not granting him immunity from being charged for some other offence etc. May I, therefore, suggest that in this modern age of advanced telecommunications the commission could record his evidence through Video Conferencing. Similarly the documentary and technical evidence (Black Berry data, exchange of Emails etc.) can also be produced before the commission through internet and other technical media.
