ISLAMABAD: The memo commission's report submitted in the Supreme Court stated that Pakistan's former ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, was not loyal to the country and that the memo seeking US support was indeed real and authored by Haqqani, our sources reported.

A nine-member larger bench of the Supreme Court was on Tuesday hearing constitutional petitions about the controversial memo delivered to former US military chief Admiral Mike Mullen reportedly by Haqqani.

The bench, headed by the chief justice, comprised Justices Mian Shakirullah Jan, Jawwad S. Khawaja, Khilji Arif Hussain, Tariq Parvez, Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, Amir Hani Muslim, Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry and Azmat Saeed.

Earlier on Monday, the memo commission had submitted its report to the apex court. It stated that the memo was indeed real and authored by the former ambassador Hussain Haqqani.

The commission's report said that Haqqani had forgotten that he was Pakistan's ambassador to the US.

The report moreover said that Haqqani violated the country's constitution, adding that while Haqqani was earning a salary paid by the government, his loyalties were not with Pakistan.

The former ambassador chose not to stay in Pakistan, the report said, adding that neither did Haqqani have any property in the country, nor did he have any bank balance.

The commission moreover said that the purpose of writing the memo was to convince American authorities that Pakistan's civilian government was US-friendly and that it was only the civilian setup that could control the expansion of Pakistan's nuclear work.
