Islamabad, Jan 13: Mansoor Ijaz, the main witness in the memogate scandal case will not go to Pakistan to offer his testimony before the Memogate Commission, reported The News.

The report further claimed that Iijaz is planning to visit Islamabad only when security issues are addressed to his satisfaction. It is also learnt that Ijaz was under pressure from the United States and reluctant to travel to Pakistan under the prevailing situation.

Iijaz was scheduled to appear before the Memogate Commission on Monday, 16 Jan, but media reports said that he won't be going to Pakistan on the said date. Reports further claimed that it was not clear if he would go or not even afterwards over security threats that he has been receiving in the recent past.

In a statement published in the media, Mansoor Ijaz said, "some important security-related concerns have arisen as the date of my testimony nears. Certain adjustments are being made that are not for public dissemination."

Meanwhile, the US embassy dismissed reports of mounting any pressure from Washington on Ijaz for his forthcoming visit to Pakistan. However, the Pak government has assured full security to Ijaz on his arrival in Pakistan to deliver his crucial testimony before the Memogate Commission.
