Former DG ISI Shuja Pasha, Husain Haqqani’s counsel Zahid Bukhari, Mansoor Ijaz’s lawyer Akram Sheikh and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik are present at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to attend the proceedings.
Pasha is attending the proceedings of the commission for the first time. While recording his statement, Pasha testified his meeting with Mansoor Ijaz. “The meeting continued for four hours,” Pasha said.
Earlier, Akram Sheikh, the counsel of Mansoor Ijaz questioned Yasin Malik regarding his nationality and passport, which was objected by the commission.
