Founder and Leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Mr. Altaf Hussain has said that he had never taken any money or funds, whether directly or indirectly, from the ISI, the MI or any other agency, or any functionary or through or from Mr. Yousuf Memon Advocate. If Mr. Memon had taken any money from the agencies or Mr. Younus Habib, he should be held accountable so that the public money belonging to the poor people of Pakistan could be returned.
In his interview to the renowned private satellite television channel GEO, the former ISI Col. Akber has categorically confirmed Mr. Hussain's blanket refusal to accept any money from the Agencies, despite persistent insistence from the Agencies to receive such money. Collaterally, Mr. Yousuf Memon Advocate, in his interview to the same television channel GEO, has also denied giving any money to Mr. Hussain or anyone else.
The unequivocal and settled stance of Mr. Altaf Hussain of not having received any money from the Agencies, directly or indirectly, stands preeminently vindicated. The above interviews of the former ISI Col. Akber and Mr. Yousuf Memon Advocate now stand recorded in the annals of the GEO television channel archives.
Despite, the above clarificatory statements Mr. Hussain has further invited the Honourable Supreme Court to initiate any further investigation or inquiry from the said Col. Akber or Mr. Yousuf Memon Advocate into the allegations in question, employing its own prerogative or discretion.
In the end, Mr. Altaf Hussain has breathed a sigh of relief that both Col. Akber and Mr. Yousuf Memon Advocate were alive and hence there was no impediment in the Supreme Court recording their statements, in case the Apex Court entertained any doubt in this regard.
