Bashir Memon, the former FBI commander-in-chief, clarified on Sunday that Prime Minister Imran Khan did not mention Justice Gazi Fais Issa during the brief meeting. name.
However, he clarified Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem had mentioned the judge by name.
A few days ago, Memon had levelled serious allegations against the government when he said the prime minister had demanded he register treason cases against Maryam Nawaz, Khawaja Asif and book other PML-N leaders in cases. This allegedly took place when Memon was the DG FIA.
He also clarified that Nassim and Prime Minister Imran Khan’s assistant Shahzad Akbar wanted him to register the case against Supreme Court Judge Qazi Faez Isa .
Maymon clarified in an interview on Saturday night that the prime minister had never mentioned Justice Issa’s name.
“That is what I am saying,” Memon had said in response to a question by the anchor. “In the brief meeting of two to three minutes, he did not talk about any particular case.”
When asked whether the premier had mentioned Justice Isa by name, Memon replied in the negative. He demanded the formation of a judicial commission to further probe the matter, adding that whatever verdict the commission would give, he would accept it.
Memon had also claimed he had told law minister Farogh Naseem in his meeting with the minister that the prime minister had not asked him about Justice Isa; otherwise he would have explained to the premier that it was not the FIA’s job to book cases against him and the Supreme Judicial Council was the right forum to investigate the matter.
The former DG FIA said he would have attempted to explain to the prime minister the legal issues had he talked to him about the judge during the meeting.
Bashir Memon, however, claimed again that the prime minister did ask him to register cases against political leaders which included Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Hamza Shahbaz, Suleman Shahbaz, Khwaja Asif, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Rana Sanaullah, Khurshid Shah, Nafeesa Shah, Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, Asfandyar Wali and some officials including Arsalan Iftikhar Chaudhry, and former NAB chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry.
Regarding the visit to the Prime Minister’s Office, the former Director-General said that the records of the gate and the protocol office will confirm the number of visits to the Prime Minister’s office. Maymont said that sometimes he had to visit the PM office three times a week.
Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Fawad Chaudhry (Fawad Chaudhry) expressed disgust with Maymont’s speech. He accused the prime minister of crimes, then made the headlines, and finally turned around.
“If this issue is raised with the concerned news channel, media freedom is under threat and if the guest is asked to explain, the slogan of political victimisation is raised”, added Chaudhry.
