ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari, who spent about two weeks in Dubai last month over heart ailment and medical treatment, is likely to leave for the same city once again soon, Geo News reported citing sources.

However, Qamar Zaman Kaira, a leader of Zardari's Pakistan Peoples Party, denied the report and termed it baseless.

According to sources quoted by Geo News, arrangements are being made for the 56-year-old Zardari's second visit to Dubai within two months.

He went to Dubai in December amidst rumours of an impending coup.

Zardari's latest visit to Dubai is being arranged amid high political temperature and fast developments following the memo scandal case in Pakistan, the Geo report added.

Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz claims to have handed over a memo to the then US military chief Gen. Mike Mullen at the behest of the then Pakistan ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani and the Pakistani government to avert a likely military coup which Zardari feared following Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden's killing last May at Abbottabad near Islamabad.

Pakistan's Supreme Court has set up a three-member commission headed by Balochistan High Court Chief Justice Qazi Faiz Isa to investigate into the scandalous memo issue.

Besides the judicial commission, a 17-member parliamentary panel -- Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS) -- is also investigating the memo issue.
