The Supreme Court is currently hearing a group of petitions that challenge the trials of civilians in military courts. The bench hearing the case includes Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and five other justices. Recently, a petition requesting a full court to hear these challenges was dismissed by the court. The reason for the dismissal was that a full court would not be available until September. The Chief Justice explained that some judges are currently on summer vacation but have returned specifically for this case. However, there are other judges who are waiting to be relieved from their duties, and this case is causing them to stay. The trials being challenged are related to the arrest of civilians during protests on May 9 and 10, where supporters of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf damaged military and state installations. The petitions argue that these trials violate the constitution.
