Anti-state statements: Treason case registered against former US ambassador Hussain Haqqani
KARACHI - Police on Wednesday registered a treason case against former Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani over his alleged anti-state statements.

Haqqani, who is at the center of the Memogate scandal, was booked under Section 120-B, 120-A, 121-A 123-A of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) by the Preedy police.

Advocate Moulvi Iqbal Haider filed a complaint seeking registration of a case against the former diplomat for allegedly committing heinous crimes by endangering the solidarity, integrity, and security of the country.





On February 15, the Supreme Court of Pakistan issued an arrest warrant for Former Pakistan Ambassador to United States Hussain Haqqani in Memogate scandal case.

The DG FIA said that they had issued a red warrant of Haqqani in order to bring back the culprit.

Earlier, the court, while hearing the Memogate case on Thursday, asked what measures the government had taken to bring back Husain Haqqani.

The SC was however assured by the Additional Attorney General (AAG) that all efforts will be made to bring back him to Pakistan.

The Memogate scandal erupted in 2011 when Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz claimed to have received an ‘anti-army’ memo from Husain Haqqani, the then-Pakistan envoy in Washington DC, for US joint chiefs chairman Admiral Mike Mullen.

The writer is a staff member. He has been affiliated with Pakistan's leading English newspapers and worked as News Producer at FM 107.4. Death (as...he believes...life is a station, and death is a longest journey from seen to unseen world), Rain, and winter's Full Moon 'Jarray ki Chandani' always fascinate him too much.
