Govt not pursuing treason case against Husain Haqqani: Malik
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday said that the government was not planning to pursue a case of treason against Husain Haqqani, DawnNews reported.
Haqqani has been accused of being behind an explosive memo that asked for Washington’s help in reining in the Pakistani military. He denies the charge.
Speaking to media representatives in Islamabad, Malik said “only an exchange of blackberry messages has surfaced in this case…it would have to be assessed as to who initiated this exchange of messages”.
He further said that the government was continuing its probe into the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto and that all those involved in the conspiracy would be exposed.
Regarding the Mumbai attacks case, Malik said Pakistan had written and dispatched a letter to the Indian government regarding a judicial commission.
He said the commission would travel to India once the Indian government communicates a response in this regard.
