302

The army top brass on Thursday expressed satisfaction on the performance of military courts but said the government would take the decision for their reinstatement.
“The forum expressed its confidence on the performance of military courts. However, the decision for reinstatement of military courts rests with the government,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement issued after the 200th Corps Commanders conference held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.
The military courts, which were established under the National Action Plan (NAP) in the wake of the deadly attack at the Army Public School in Peshawar in December 2014, handed down the death sentence to 161 terrorists before their term expired on January 7.
No consensus was reached between the government and opposition on their revival despite frequent meetings on the issue.
