ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court announces verdict in case of military courts convicts bail orders by Peshawar High Court.

The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday stopped the Peshawar High Court (PHC) from passing interim orders pertaining to the release of 290 military court convicts on bail.

A two-member Supreme Court bench comprising Justice Mushir Alam and Justice Qazi Amin Ahmed heard the Federal Government’s plea to halt the Peshawar High Court (PHC) from issuing bail granting orders in favour of 290 militants who were convicted earlier by the military courts.

During the course of proceedings, the bench also asked the high court to proceed the matter on merit and issued a notice to all the respondents.

AGP Khalid Javed said granting bail to the convicts would cause an irreparable loss.
