The cross-examination of Mansoor Ijaz has begun via the live-video link from London High Commission, Geo News reported. Nawaz Sharif's legal counsels Mustafa Ramday and Rasheed A Rizvi are in London for the purpose. While, defence lawyer Zahid Bukhari and Mansoor's counsel Akram Sheikh are attending proceedings at the Islamabad High Court. The memo commission is headed by Chief Justice of Baluchistan High Court, Qazi Faiz Isa and two other members are Chief Justice of Sindh High Court Musheer Alam and Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Iqbal Hameed-ur-Rehman. After appearing for three straight days before the judicial commission from London, Mansoor Ijaz has grown in confidence and belligerence, especially so in the absence of Haqqani's failure to produce before the commission his BlackBerry sets, PIN numbers, telephone logs, email exchanges records and other details for forensic examination. Following the completion of cross-questioning by Nawaz Sharif's lawyers, Zahid Bukhari will focus on trying to find contradictions in Mansoor Ijaz's otherwise testimony which has brought unprecedented pressure on Husain Haqqani. It is not clear whether Zahid Bukhari will come to London to grill Ijaz face-to-face or through the video-link.
