Pakistan Air Force case under scrutiny

Lahore High Court
A capital case from the Pakistan Air Force, arising from an attempt to assassinate former president Pervez Musharraf, has come under attack in the Lahore High Court. Numerous issues have been advanced on behalf of the petitioners, according to this account in The News International, including denial of counsel of choice, access to the record of proceedings, appellate review consisting of a mere checkmark on a form, and increased punishment on appeal without notice or opportunity to make submissions. The Air Force trial was conducted in 2004.
