LAHORE - A Division Bench of the Lahore High Court Wednesday reserved judgment on a petition earlier moved by Pakistani Ambassador to US, Hussain Haqqani, to question inclusion of his name in the list of NRO beneficiaries by the NAB authorities. During the proceedings, FIA investigator Khalid Mehmood, who had probed cases against Haqqani along with NAB officials some ten years back, appeared in the court and submitted that he had found him guilty in his investigations. However, NAB authorities and its counsel informed the bench that the cases of Mr Haqqani came before NAB for investigation in which he was found innocent. But his name still remained in the record as such it went by mistake into the list of NRO beneficiaries. The bench headed by Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif heard the petition of Haqqani. The NAB also submitted record of its investigations against Haqqani on basis of which he was exonerated in the case registered in 1997. A case of irregularities in granting cable TV network licences was investigated by NAB against Hussain Haqqani and Benazir Bhutto but due to death of Benazir, the case against her was abated. Haqqani through his counsel submitted that he never applied for any benefit under national reconciliation ordinance (NRO) in any alleged case against him. Haqqani submitted that he was arrested by Ehtisab Bureau in 1999 and later handed over to FIA which registered three cases against him on the charges of misuse of power. However, he was later released on bail by Lahore High Court after 79 days in detention. He further said that FIR in one of the cases was also quashed by Sindh High Court whereas the other case was dropped by the investigating agency after failing to produce any evidence. He said the third case that allegedly was on the list of cases had never reached the stage of prosecution during the last ten years, therefore, there was no question of requesting any relief under the NRO. He said the investigation agency might have dropped the case on its own. The petitioner requested the court to direct the authorities to delete his name from the list of NRO beneficiaries.
