    Memo an attempt to demoralise military: Gen. Kayani

    Submitting his rejoinder on the concise statements of other respondents, including the federal government, over the memo controversy, Chief of Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani termed the memo an attempt to demoralise the Pakistan Army, and reiterated his earlier stance that it was a reality and should be probed.

    In compliance with the Supreme Court's December 19 order, Kayani submitted his rejoinder along with an affidavit through Attorney General of Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq over the memo issue, in which he repeated his previous stance, stating that he had not concealed anything best known to him, in his concise statement. He said the memo had tried to decrease the morale of the Pakistan Army, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

    In its rejoinder, the federal government repeated its earlier stance that the president and prime minister had no link with the memo, and denied that President Asif Ali Zardari was its originator. The federation again questioned Supreme Court's jurisdiction to hear the memo controversy under Article 184 (3) of the Constitution.

    It stated that the Parliamentary Committee on National Security, which had representation from all the political parties, was independent to hold an inquiry into the issue. The PML-N President Nawaz Sharif and MNA Khawaja Asif, in their rejoinders, endorsed the stance of army chief and DG ISI on the memo issue. They also supported the reply of Mansoor Ijaz. They contended that the court had jurisdiction to hear the memo case.
