Terming the whole incident an embarrassment for the nation, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said that he would support an investigation into the release of the U.S. spy Raymond Davis if the parliament asks for it.
"I don't think any institution was involved in the case".
It was stated by him in response to Calling Attention Notice and Adjournment Motion moved in the Senate regarding revelations made by the CIA Agent Raymond Davis in his book titled "The Contractor" which has raised several questions on the ability of our institutions. He said that different people played their role in Davis' release, which was a violation of the country's dignity.
"I am ready to extend support for investigation", he said, adding that investigation should be conducted to overcome such kind of incidents in future not for political point scoring.
The Foreign Minister said that we feel ashamed as nation over the episode of the release of Raymond Davis as various personalities fulfilled their commitments with others by putting aside national interest. A third Pakistani man was struck and killed by a vehicle that was reportedly racing to Davis' aid.
According to him, the Government of Pakistan paid the blood money to their heirs of the victims. Judges then acquitted him on all charges and Davis immediately returned to the United States. Recently, in his book "The Contractor: How I Landed in a Pakistani Prison and Ignited a Diplomatic Crisis", he highlighted the role of former Central Intelligence Agency director Leon Panetta and ISI's former chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha, who allegedly played a big role in securing his release.
Davis also refers to another report, which says that this plan was devised during a meeting between Gen Pasha and Ambassador Munter.
