ISLAMABAD - Secretary Memo Commission Raja Jawad Abbas left for London on Sunday to record statement of the central character of the memo scandal, Mansoor Ijaz, through a video link on February 22. 

Sources said Raja Jawad will collect evidence including electronic devices, besides reviewing arrangements for Mansoor Ijaz’s videoconference for the Memo Commission on February 22.

Ijaz will record his statement on February 22 at the Pakistan High Commission.

The secretary of the Memo Commission has been sent to London to collect important and confidential proofs from Ijaz. Zahid Bukhari, lawyer for former ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani, has also submitted a request to acquire the British visa.

Earlier Judicial Commission, at a meeting at the Islamabad High Court (IHC), had decided to record Ijaz’s statement at the Pakistani High Commission in London through video-link.

It was also decided that Secretary Memo Commission Jawad Abbas would travel to London before the statement is recorded, and collect all documentary and physical evidence provided by Ijaz.
