The Supreme Court of Pakistan has stayed all executions ordered by the country's new military courts, according to this article in Dawn:

“The execution of military courts' death sentences, those which have already been awarded and those which will be awarded, is suspended,” Chief Justice Nasir ul Mulk told the Supreme Court.

Those convicted by military courts could appeal against their sentences, he added.
