Description

A Pakistani judicial commission has concluded that the country’s former Ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, was behind a mysterious memo that sought US help to stave off a feared coup and said he was “not loyal” to the country while serving as an envoy. The Supreme Court-appointed commission’s findings were made public as a nine-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry began examining the panel’s report this morning. After the sealed report was presented to the bench, the Chief Justice asked Attorney General Irfan Qadir to read out its recommendations. The report said Haqqani was “not loyal” to Pakistan while serving as the envoy in the US and had sought to undermine the security of the country’s nuclear assets, the armed forces, the Inter-Services Intelligence and the Constitution.
