Ex-Chief Justice Chaudry opposes military courts proposal

Former Chief Justice
Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudry
Former Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudry of the Supreme Court of Pakistan has spoken out against the Nation Action Plan military courts proposal, according to this article in Dawn:
“Independent judiciary is already present in the country so there is no need for military courts. Such courts are illegal because the basic structure of the constitution guarantees an independent judiciary,” he said.
Judging by the latest news reports out of Pakistan, the military courts proposal is by no means a done deal. Global Military Justice Reform will keep readers informed.
