ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's former ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani on Monday submitted his written reply to the Abbottabad commission, DawnNews reported.

After the statement’s submission, the commission directed Haqqani to appear before it again.

Moreover, a statement from Sheikh Rashid, president of the Awami Muslim League, was also submitted to the commission today.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court was also hearing petitions on the memo affair filed by PML-N president Nawaz Sharif and others.

Earlier, the commission’s head, Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, had said that the former ambassador was being summoned because the panellists wanted to find out the details of the visas issued by Pakistan’s embassy in Washington during his service.

Haqqani had resigned from his position of ambassador days after Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz accused him of being behind the memo that said the military was plotting a coup and appealed to the Pentagon to help ward it off.

Haqqani has denied any connection with the memo.
