01 August 2012
LONDON: The central character in Olympic visa scandal, Muhammad Ali Asad in an interview given to Geo News on Tuesday said he was all set to release more videos to expose the reality of the passport system that is in place Pakistan.
"I have only released a trailer, the whole movie still remains to be released," Asad said during an exclusive interview with Geo News.
Asad claimed to have video footage of many hours in duration and that the moment it is released would completely unnerve Rehman Malik.
He said he was waiting for the day when Prime Minister's Advisor on Interior Rehman Malik takes action against him. "I am not a villain, I just want Pakistan's passport system in a better shape," he said and termed the claim of the country's passport system being error-free as 'ridiculous'.
He believed that terrorists were gaining undue advantage from the weaknesses of Pakistan's passport apparatus.
"I haven't besmirched the name of Pakistan, only fulfilled journalistic responsibilities," Asad maintained.
