A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Balochistan High Court (BHC) Justice Qazi Faiz Isa resumed the hearing of infamous Memogate case.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif, former ambassador to US Husain Haqqani and Mansoor Ijazís counsel Akram Shaikh were present during hearing.

On the other hand, Blackberry maker, Research in Motion (RIM) has refused to release data related to 'memogate' scandal.

The Canada-based phone manufacturer said that their privacy laws strictly prohibit disclosure of a customerís data to any other party without the consent of the concerned parties, thus Pakistan cannot have it.
