Hussain Haqqani in hot waters


ISLAMABAD - FIA Anti-corruption circle has registered embezzlement case against Hussain Haqqani in the secret fund case worth $7.2 million.

The FIA asked the Foreign Ministry for details on the Pakistani embassy to investigate the matter further, sources added.

In February, the Supreme Court issued arrest warrants for the production of former ambassador of Pakistan to the US in relation to the Memogate scandal.

In the hearing, the apex court had directed secretaries of the interior and foreign ministers, as well as the FIA chief, to furnish a report on Haqqani's return in one week.

Responding to reports of the warrants, Haqqani stated on Twitter that it was "sad that highest court of Pakistan persists with such antics for local TV news coverage. Such political 'warrants' have not been honored abroad in the past, won't work now".
