Personal or subject matter jurisdiction in Pakistan

Pakistan Today reports:
The Supreme Court on Friday rejected defence (sic) ministry’s review petition against its order to uphold the Lahore High Court (LHC) decision that said there could not be court martial of a military official over non-disclosure of his financial assets, according to a report published in an English daily said.
Gill, an army officer, was tried by field general court martial (FGCM) on three charges relating to the money matters and one relating to the improperly filing of his tax return for 1996-97 by declaring his salary as his sole source of income, while he had income from other sources as well.
On a U.S. note, I suspect an officer would be subject to prosecution under the UCMJ.  There are various ways under Articles 133 and 134 that a prosecution could proceed.
