Pakistan's former ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued arrest warrant for former ambassador of Pakistan to the US, Husain Haqqani, in connection with 2011 Memogate scandal, according to media reports.

The Memogate case is based on a "memo" which Haqqani, who now lives in the United States, allegedly gave to a high-ranking American official in May 2011, seeking U.S. help against possible military intervention.

A court official said that Additional Attorney General Rana Waqar told the court that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has asked Interpol to issue a red warrant against Haqqani.

"Pakistan Supreme Court has become a political institution and an instrument for Pakistan's establishment comprising of military and intelligence service".

Paul Pogba Demands Jose Mourinho Change His Tactics
But the Spanish side's number one target remains Harry Kane, meaning Jose Mourinho could be in pole position to snap up Icardi. The report claims that Pogba wants to play on the left of a midfield three, giving him licence to drive forward and attack.

He said, "I have read with mild amusement the Pakistan Supreme Court's claim to have issued global warrants for my arrest for failing to appear before it". Such "political" warrants had not been honoured overseas in the past and it would not work now, he added.

The Supreme Court constituted a three-member bench on February 1 to resume the hearing of the memogate case involving former ambassador to the United States of America (USA) Hussain Haqqani.

The memo was delivered in May 2011; Mansoor Ijaz wrote a Financial Times article in October 2011 bringing initial public attention to the affair.

"Haqqani left his case", The Nation quoted Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar as saying.

After 54 Years of Statehood, Nagaland Yet to Elect Woman to Assembly
Questions may be asked if the BJP deems the Christian population of Nagaland less dignified than Muslims across India. BJP is believed to have made a similar promise to the Christians of a trip to Jerusalem, though for free.

It sought assistance from the U.S. for the then-Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government for "reigning in the military and intelligence agencies".

Haqqani denied any role in the "memo" but a judicial commission in 2012 held him responsible.

The scandal, taken to the Supreme Court by then opposition leader Nawaz Sharif and several others, had led to Haqqani's resignation and subsequent exit from the country as the hearing was under way. That it disrupted lives without a conclusion is a sad reflection on how things work in Pakistan.

In December previous year, three people had separately lodged FIRs against Hussain Haqqani in two police stations of Kohat for delivering hate speeches and writing books and articles against the armed forces and the "sovereignty of Pakistan".
