Haqqani to sue Imran for defamation


Former Pakistan ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani, while rubbishing allegations levelled against him by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, said Tuesday that he is seeking the assistance of his lawyers for legal action against the former prime minister.

On Sunday, the ousted prime minister while speaking to journalists in Lahore, alleged that Haqqani had been tasked by Gen (retd) Bajwa to lobby in the US.

Khan also said that the former diplomat launched a campaign against him and had been promoting the former army chief in the US.

Bajwa’s “setup is still working in the establishment”, he claimed. In response to Khan’s serious allegations, Haqqani said that the PTI chief does not get tired of blaming a person who has not held any position of power for 11 years.
