Ex-Pakistani envoy to US wins court victory

ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistan's former envoy to Washington says a court commision probing his alleged role in a controversial memo sent to Washington has dropped a travel ban imposed upon him.

Husain Haqqani said Monday he intended to travel to the United States to join family there.

Haqqani resigned in November and returned to Islamabad to answer allegations that he masterminded a memo sent to Washington that requested its help in reining in the Pakistani army.

The memo outraged the country's powerful army, and at the height of the scandal led to speculations it could lead to the demise of the government.

Haqqani has denied any involvment in the memo.
