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".

We should pursue it with a ... "A great honor been nominated for a James [Beard] Award", Rojas posted on Facebook today. Cure , the Freret Street cocktail purveyor, was nominated for a third time for best bar program.

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.

Tillerson says Hezbollah actions threaten Lebanon, region
The US Secretary of state is on a five-day regional tour taking in Lebanon as well as Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait and Turkey. US President Donald Trump has been tough on Hezbollah, imposing new sanctions created to damage Iran and its allies.

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".
