The Pakistani judicial commission investigating the Memogate scandal issued a notice to president Asif Ali Zardari to present his views on the issue at the next hearing on January 9.

Zardari is not required to appear in person before the panel and could submit his views through a counsel, TV news channels quoted officials as saying.

At its first meeting held on January 2, the supreme court-appointed commission had directed officials to send notices to all respondents and petitioners in the Memogate case in the apex court.

The respondents include Zardari, army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Inter-Services Intelligence agency chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, Pakistan’s former envoy to the US, Husain Haqqani, and Mansoor Ijaz, the Pakistani-American businessman who made public the alleged memo that sought American help to stave off a military coup in Pakistan.
