ISLAMABAD: Former ambassador to the United State (US) Husain Haqqani on Wednesday submitted an application before the memo commission to adjourn Thursday's (today) hearing owing to his health.

The former ambassador submitted the application through his counsel Syed Zahid Husain Bokhari. Haqqani stated that he was undergoing cardiac treatment. He also stated that he was scheduled for an MRI/CT scan at the National Institutes of Health on April 4. Haqqani also submitted a certificate from the practice administrator, Cardiology Center of the US.

Haqqani's lawyer said the US doctors have found Haqqani to have symptoms of crescendo angina and have advised thorough investigation and tests. Doctors advised Haqqani that he should consult his cardiologist as soon as possible, he added.

The counsel said Husain Haqqani had also attached a copy of a letter from Arshad Rehan, MO, the Fairfield Cardiovascular Associates.

On March 31 the memo commission had summoned the former ambassador to record his statement.
