Haqqani wants action against Akram


Former Pakistan ambassador to the US Hussain Haqqani on Friday moved an application before the judicial commission probing the memo issue, seeking action against Akram Sheikh, counsel for Mansoor Ijaz, for attributing false statements to him. Haqqani, through his counsel Syed Zahid Hussain Bokhari, requested the commission to restrict Sheikh from attributing false, incorrect and provocative statements about the applicant in the interest of justice.
He also requested that the commission might kindly take notice or action of this matter by passing an appropriate order. Enumerating reasons, he said on January 9, Sheikh told the electronic media that he had hurled threats at his client. The news reports were also carried by a number of newspapers. He said such fallacious and fabricated claims carried no weight and were malafide.
