ISLAMABAD: A nine-member larger bench heard identical petitions on the memogate case in the Supreme Court (SC) Tuesday. During proceedings the report submitted by the memo commission was presented.
According to the report, the alleged memo was real and was written by former ambassador Husain Haqqani who sought US support through the memo and wanted to head the new security team.
The report also stated that Haqqani was not loyal to Pakistan as he had left the country and living abroad.
The court summoned the former ambassador to appear in the next hearing and adjourned the case for two weeks. In this connection, notices were also issued to the concerned parties. The court has ordered to make the report public.
The bench, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, was constituted on Monday after the commission on the memogate scandal completed its probe. The commission which was constituted by the apex court on December 30, 2011, submitted its report on June 11, 2012, in a sealed envelope. The bench opened the report and read out its content.
Other members of the larger bench include Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan, Justice Jawad S Khawaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain, Justice Tariq Parvez, Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, Justice Amir Hani Muslim, Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry and Justice Sh Azmat Saeed.
