Memo from the Chief of Army Staff: send more cases

The Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan has expressed concern that not enough cases are being sent to military courts. No cases have been referred since January. Details here.

Human rights jurisprudence strongly disfavors the trial of civilians by military tribunals.

Editor's question: who is in charge here, the government or the army?
