Military Courts Extension: Asif Zardari's direction to PPP leaders

Asif Ali Zardari has directed party lawmakers to oppose any proposal seeking reinstatement of military courts, Geo News reported days after the tenure of the tribunals expired.

The decision from PPP leader comes a couple of days after government said it has started consultation with political parties to introduce an amendment in the parliament in order to bring back the military courts.

Zardari has asked PPP leaders to adopt a strict a stance against the military courts in the parliament, according to Geo News.

The military courts were set up after an amendment in the constitution following a militant attack at Peshawar’s Army Public Schools.
