Disappearance case to be tried by court-martial

Justice Amir Hani Muslim
Two Pakistan Army officers previously assigned to the Frontier Corps who have been accused of forced disappearances in Balochistan will be tried under the Army Act 1952 rather than in the civilian courts. Relatives of the disappeared persons have complained that they would not have access to military trials, but Justice Amir Hani Muslim sought to reassure them that the officers' cases would in the end be subject to review by the Supreme Court.
