"Pakistan’s former ambassador to the United States was barred Thursday from traveling abroad while a panel authorized by the Supreme Court investigates a controversial memo that led to his resignation. The court’s order came on its first day examining a petition filed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, now an opposition leader, who has alleged that the memo, which sought U.S. help with reining in the powerful Pakistani military, was probably crafted with the knowledge of President Asif Ali Zardari and amounted to treason."
