ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) has been told that credible information about US forces attack against Osama Bin Laden was provided to former president Asif Ali Zardari through Farrah Naz Isphahani wife of Hussain Haqani Pakistan ambassador to US but Zardari had kept it secret from armed forces of Pakistan deliberately.

The SC was further told had Pakistan Air Force been alerted on the basis of this information then it could have frustrated the US attack despite Americans technical edge but the former president did not proclaim emergency despite threats to national security.

Io an appeal plea filed against former president Asif Ali Zardari and Hussain Haqani it has been said memorandum sent by Hussain Haqani to Admiral Michael Mullen a few days after Abbottabad attack was in fact a joint activity from both of these persons. The motive behind it was to delineate Pakistan political government relations with US forces. Therefore, the said memo was sent to Pentagon rather than US state department or White House.

It has been said in appeal that mutual contact between Asif Ali Zardari and Hussain could not become manifest fully in Memo Commission report because commission considered it an individual act of a diplomat despite the fact that both of them remained in constant contact through Farah Naz Isphahani.

Appeal plea has been filed against the decision of Justice Noor ul Haq Qureshi of Islamabad High Court (IHC) who had rejected petition seeking action against former president Asif Ali Zardari and Hussain under article 6 of the constitution on the basis of objections raised by office.

In the stay order application it has been said former ambassador Hussain Haqqani has fled from Pakistan practically, therefore, former president be restrained from going abroad.

The petitioner Shahid Orakzai has said that the documentary proof on advance information about Abbottabad attack provided through Hussain Haqani is held by him but Abbottabad Commission did not pay heed to it.
