Justice Muhammad Farrukh Irfan Khan of Lahore High Court on Thursday reserved his verdict on the maintainability of a petition asking the federal government to repatriate former Ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani, the chief accused in the memogate controversy.
Citizen Iftikhar Hussain said Haqqani was guilty of high treason.
He said the envoy had brought the nation’s name into disrepute.
Hussain said that Hussain Haqqani had been permitted to leave the country and settle in the United States despite the findings of a commission that had held him guilty.
The petitioner requested the court to instruct the federal government to repatriate him and serve him justice.
