RAWALPINDI - Pakistans Ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani moved Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench on Tuesday against inclusion of his name in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) beneficiaries list. Haqqani filed the petition through his lawyer Sohail Qaiser Hasan seeking intervention of the court on the basis that NAB had used NRO 2007 to drop its investigation in an FIR registered back in August 1997, and that till 2008 the investigations were not completed in the matter. He said that NAB could not shape it into a reference even after the lapse of 11 years. Haqqani maintained in his petition that he was made a co-accused in the case in May 1999 when he was kidnapped and later arrested by FIA on the orders of Saif-ur-Rehman. Three FIRs were filed against him. He said that he was released on bail in all the three cases by LHC and SHC in July 1999. Later one of the FIRs was dropped at the investigation stage when evidence was found lacking and another was quashed by the Sindh High Court. Haqqanis lawyer contended that investigation in the FIR under question was an abandoned case and should have been dropped by NAB even otherwise and using NRO 2007 to drop the case was wrong and then inclusion of his name in the list of beneficiaries of NRO was malicious. The petition also said that Haqqani neither filed any application to seek relief under NRO nor was informed by NAB that investigation had been dropped.
