SC Bars PHC From Releasing Military Court Convicts On Bail

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday barred the Peshawar High Court (PHC) from passing interim orders pertaining to the release of military court convicts.

A two-member bench, comprising Justice Mushir Alam and Justice Qazi Amin, also directed the high court to proceed the matter on merit and issued a notice to all respondents.

During the hearing today, Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Khalid Javed contended that if the high court grants bail, there will be an “irreparable loss”.

The hearing was subsequently adjourned till Monday.
