Mark your calendars

On February 18, 2016, a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear challenges to cases decided by military commissions under the country's 21st Amendment, according to this report.

The military courts authorization expires on January 7, 2017. According to this article, the government has not taken the steps needed to beef up civilian courts, which was the reason the military courts' jurisdiction was extended to civilians in the first place. Watch for another constitutional amendment.
