The Supreme Court of Pakistan is currently considering a case involving the military trials of civilians. The bench, led by Justice Ijazul Ahsan, has reserved its verdict on a set of petitions challenging the constitutionality of these trials. The Attorney General for Pakistan, Mansoor Usman, argued that a constitutional amendment was necessary to establish military courts in 2015 for the purpose of trying terrorists. The government recently filed a plea informing the court about the commencement of civilian trials in military courts. The plea stated that 102 people had been arrested in connection with events on May 9 and 10, and that the trial was being conducted to provide justice to the detainees. Last week, a petitioner who is the father of a person in military custody urged the court to expedite the hearing, as trials had already begun. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party welcomed the formation of the bench and criticized the trials as a violation of the constitution. Various petitions have been filed with the apex court, asserting that the military trials of civilians are in violation of constitutional rights. The protests that prompted these arrests occurred after the PTI chief was arrested in Islamabad, leading to damage to military and state properties.
