Supreme Court issues arrest warrants for Husain Haqqani

Supreme Court issues arrest warrants for Husain Haqqani

Pakistan's former ambassador to US Hussain Haqqani on Thursday reacted over the issuance of arrest warrants by the Supreme Court against him in Memogate case. Such "political" warrants had not been honoured overseas in the past and it would not work now, he added.

Earlier today, the top court issued arrest warrants for Pakistan's former ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani in the Memogate case.

The AAG told the bench that according to the standard operating procedure, the FIA needs an arrest warrant issued by the court.

"Why should we not issue him a notice to appear before the court so that he could face allegations in the Memogate scandal?" "I have not been charged with any crime and have not been put on trial".

Haqqani responded, accusing the court of persisting with "such antics for local TV news coverage".

He said that such measures will not interrupt his life.

The Memogate scandal erupted in 2011 when Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz claimed to have received an "anti-army" memo from Haqqani for the then-US joint chiefs chairman Admiral Mike Mullen.

CM Punk is slightly larger than Floyd Mayweather is right now, so Punk may have to cut his weight to satisfy Mayweather's demands. Maybe they've cured it, and maybe they're fine, but we've known for a long time he's preferred puffier gloves when he's fought.

The Supreme Court constituted a three-member bench on February 1 to resume the hearing of the memogate case involving former ambassador to the United States of America (USA) Hussain Haqqani.

The case had reminded the chief justice of Haqqani.

The memo had offered greater government cooperation in return for USA backing against the powerful military in the immediate aftermath of the May 2 raid which led to the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.

At the last hearing on February 8, the top court summoned the secretaries of the interior and foreign affairs and the director general of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to discuss possible steps for bringing Husain Haqqani back to Pakistan.

A judicial commission tasked to probe the case had concluded that the memo was authentic and authored by the former envoy.

Most recently, on January 21, media reports stated that three FIRs were registered against Haqqani in two police stations of Kohat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for delivering hate speeches and writing against the armed forces and sovereignty of Pakistan.
