Memo case: SC to hear Haqqani's plea Thursday

Pakistan,Indo-Pak/Pakistan,Immigration/Law/Rights, Wed, 28 Mar 2012 IANS

Islamabad, March 28 (IANS) A 10-member Pakistani Supreme Court bench would Thursday hear a petition by former ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani seeking a video link facility from London for recording his statement in the Memo case, Geo News reported Wednesday.


The bench, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, would take up the matter after the Memo Commission probing the episode rejected Haqqani's demand for the facility.


Haqqani, through his counsel Asma Jahangir, filed the petition March 24 demanding equal opportunity for recording his statement from London as it was done in the case of Pakistani American businessman Mansoor Ijaz, the central character in the memo scandal.


The Pakistani apex court-appointed Memo Commission is probing Ijaz's claim to have last year delivered a secret memo to then US joint chiefs chairman Admiral Mike Mullen at the behest of Haqqani and the Pakistani government.


The memo said that Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari feared a coup after Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed last May by US commandos. The existance of the memo triggered a scandal and cost Haqqani his job.
