Transparency and Pakistani military justice

As Exhibit A, consider the following excerpt from this article:
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) spokesperson Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa confirmed suspension of six army officers by Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif as part of an anti-corruption drive.
The officers were dismissed, punished and sent home on corruption charges, he said during a night-time television show with popular investigative journalist Kamran Khan. The army spokesperson said that the action was taken after months of investigation.
About the army’s silence and the absence of an official version after the sackings, Lt General Bajwa maintained such actions within the army were not made public anywhere in the world. . . .
