SC gives deadline for Hussain Haqqani arrest

ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court has given thirty day deadline to authorities concerned to bring back Pakistan's former Ambassador to US Hussain Haqqani.

The directions were given during hearing of the memogate case by a three member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar, in Islamabad today (Wednesday).

Foreign and Interior Secretaries also appeared before the bench.

Earlier this year the Supreme Court (SC) resumed the hearing of the Memogate case the Chief Justice of Pakistan said they will summon Husain Haqqani to face the charges against him.

This development came as a three-judge bench headed by CJP Mian Saqib Nisar heard the petitions for granting right of vote to overseas Pakistanis in the upcoming general elections 2018.

The Memogate controversy revolves around a memorandum allegedly drafted by Ambassador Haqqani at the behest of President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari and addressed to US Admiral Mike Mullen.
