Web Desk June 29, 2012

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan issued notices to all respondents in the Memogate case, including former ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani and American businessman Mansoor Ijaz, Express News reported on Friday.

A nine-member bench of the Supreme Court will hear the case on July 12, 2012.

The judicial commission probing into the Memogate scandal had found Haqqani guilty of authoring the memorandum -  the document delivered to US officials seeking assistance to overthrow the top military brass of the country.

However, Haqqani had strongly denied the accusations on his Twitter account.

The scandal had started when Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz claimed last year of having received a message from Haqqani to deliver a confidential memo to Admiral Mike Mullen, regarding a possible military takeover.

. The biggest mistake was to let main culprit escape. However he was just a pawn, the actual Gurus are still in the country. SC shouldn't delay the matter further and order for their execution and should seek assistance from Army. These crooks wouldn't have spared Jinah from maligning. Chief Justice should mind the remarks above by these LOBs.

Mirza | 9 years ago | Reply The PCO SC judges think this is the most imp issue in Pakistan, hence a large bench of judges. There is no need to criticize the number of judges in the bench, as they were not doing anything of public interest anyway. They are looking for political and populist cases
