Sindh High Court Bar Association to challenge 21st Amendment

The Sindh High Court Bar Association will be filing a challenge to the 21st Amendment in the Pakistani Supreme Court. A resolution passed unanimously that states in part:
“This association was of the view that any amendment for setting up military courts for trial of terrorists by amending the Constitution of Pakistan shall be ultra vires of the basic structure of the Constitution, would amount to creation of parallel judicial system, besides adversely affecting the dispensation of justice through courts.”
Details here from The Express Tribune and here from Dawn.
