Esther 3:12, Question 2. Why does the verse emphasize that “Haman commanded” the writing of the decree?

Perhaps the verse emphasizes that “Haman commanded” this decree as a reminder that Achashverosh is not considered responsible for Haman’s actions. This would certainly support the Malbim’s opinion mentioned earlier.
