As regards his statement during an interview to a Chinese newspaper on the replies submitted by the Army Chief and DG ISI in memogate case, the Prime Minister said under the rules of business the replies should have been sent through the Ministry of Defence to the Ministry of Law and Justice and then to the Attorney General of Pakistan.
