Cases withdrawn from military courts

Three cases from Punjab are being withdrawn from Pakistan's new military courts, according to this report in Dawn. The number of accused in the three cases is unclear. The reasons given for the decision to transfer the cases to civilian anti-terrorism courts include the age of one of the accused, some of the accused are out on bail from the civilian courts, some of the interrogations were conducted by civilian law enforcement personnel, and, quite simply, insufficient evidence in some cases. One of the accused had already been executed and another had been killed.
