Memogate: Top court orders govt to bring back ... 11:25 AM | 28 Mar, 2018
ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court on Wednesday gave 30 days deadline to the government for taking steps to bring back former ...
Haqqani, who is also a prime suspect in the Memogate scandal, had been booked under Section 3,4, 409, 420, and 109 of Pakistan Penal Code following a probe conducted by the anti-corruption establishment.
The Memogate scandal surfaced in 2011 when Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz revealed that he had received a letter against Pakistan Army from Haqqani for the then-US joint chiefs chairman Admiral Mike Mullen.
Following Ijaz's claims, a judicial commission was set up to probe the memo, which mentioned a possible military take over in Pakistan following the killing of Osama bin Laden in a US raid in Abbottabad.
In the memo, assistance was sought from the US to save the then government of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) giving an impression that PPP government is Pro-US.
Later, the judicial commission found that the memo was written by the former ambassador and was authentic.
The matter was taken to the Supreme Court by then opposition leader Nawaz Sharif after which Haqqani had resigned as an envoy.
