Islamabad [Pakistan], November 4 (ANI): The Pakistan Government on Saturday cleared 29 terrorism related cases to be sent to the military courts after the country's Army chief general Qamar Javed Bajwa raised concern over the courts not receiving any such cases since January.
Bajwa in his letter to the Prime Minister pointed out that the military courts had not received any terrorism-related cases since January.
"These cases will be first approved in the next cabinet meeting. After this, the interior ministry will not have any more pending cases," Iqbal added.
The 28th Amendment Bill 2017, which sought the extension of military courts for another two years, was passed in the Senate after two-third majority votes came in its favour on March 28. (ANI)
