ISLAMABAD – Former Pakistani Ambassador in US, Hussain Haqqani lands into yet another trouble.
A Court in Islamabad has issued permanent arrest warrant of former ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani today (Friday).
During the hearing of Memogate case headed by special judge Irum Niazi, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented its report, alleging Haqqani of embezzlement of Rs2 million dollars.
The officials said that the ex-ambassador is deliberately hiding to avoid arrest.
The Memogate controversy revolves around a memorandum allegedly drafted by Haqqani at the behest of former president Asif Ali Zardari and addressed to US Admiral Mike Mullen.
Haqqani was criticised by the Pakistani parliament for his column in The Washington Post in which he had written that he had helped US forces in action against Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden when the government and the Inter-Services Intelligence had been kept in the dark about the secret operation.
