Pakistani state TV and an opposition leader say a judicial probe has concluded that the country's former ambassador to the U.S. did write a letter to American officials requesting their help reining in the army.

The investigation result could lead to treason charges against Husain Haqqani, and possibly add to pressures on President Asif Ali
Zardari.

Haqqani has denied any role in the affair and said the commission report was "political and one-sided."

The commission was investigating explosive allegations that
Haqqani sought U.S. assistance last year in warding off an alleged
army coup.

Lawmaker Khwaja Asif said the probe concluded Haqqani tried to
undermine Pakistan's constitution and was not "loyal to the
state."

The report was read out in court and is due to be released later
Tuesday.
