Ex-Pakistan envoy Husain Haqqani receiving threats

Last Updated: Thursday, April 26, 2012 - 12:14

Islamabad: Former Pakistan ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, told the Supreme Court (SC) that he was under threats from different quarters and requested the Commission to record his testimony through video conference from Washington.

Haqqani told the SC through written application that his life is in danger and unless the Commission does not come up with a final report, he will continue to be perceived as a traitor, reported The Nation.

Haqqani said a short leave from his job is possible, but he is worried about the threats and campaigns against him in Pakistan, and the possibility of being placed on ECL (Exit Control List).

Haqqani was restricted by the SC to leave Pakistan, but was allowed to leave the country on an undertaking contained in the order of the SC on January 31, 2012.

He further said that convenience lies in recording the evidence through video conference as he is keen to put a closure to the inquiry of the memo case.
