Breaking: Sindh Government to challenge SC decision against civilian trials in military courts
The Caretaker government of Sindh has contested the Supreme Court's decision opposing civilian trials in military courts, as per Thursday's report by ARY News.
On October 23, the Supreme Court delivered a 4-1 verdict against civilian trials in military courts, prompted by pleas, including one from PTI chairman Imran Khan, challenging the military trial of individuals involved in the May 9 riots linked to Imran Khan's arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust case.
The Sindh government's plea argues that the SC failed to review the law and circumstances. The Sindh government has urged the superior court to suspend its verdict until a decision on the review plea, emphasizing the accused's demand for military court trials.
The federal government previously informed the Supreme Court about the initiation of trials for civilians in military courts, complying with the court's August 3 order, following the arrest of 102 individuals in connection with the May 9 and 10 incidents.
