Pakistani former prime minister and opposition leader Nawaz Sharif leaves the Supreme Court in Islamabad, Pakistan on Thursday, Dec 1, 2011. Sharif filed a petition for a thorough investigation in the memo-gate scandal. A Pakistani parliamentarian says the Supreme Court has barred the country's former envoy to the U.S. from leaving, while a commission investigates his role in a memo scandal that led to his resignation. The court on Thursday ordered former Ambassador Husain Haqqani to remain in the country, and appointed a special commissioner to probe the incident. Haqqani has been accused of crafting a memo asking the U.S. for help in reining in Pakistan's military, following the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May.
