Pak yet to receive Ijaz's visa plea

Pakistan has not received a visa application from controversial businessman Mansoor Ijaz, the main accuser in the memo scandal, in Switzerland or any other country, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said on Thursday.

Ijaz’s visa application or passport had not been received by any Pakistani mission so far, Basit told a weekly news briefing in response to questions. He rejected media reports that Ijaz had applied for a visa to the Pakistani embassy in Switzerland.

The Supreme Court-appointed commission that is investigating the memo made public by Ijaz has asked him to appear before it on January 24. Ijaz failed to make a scheduled appearance before the commission on Monday.
