A fiscal objection to military courts

Sen. Siraj ul Haq
A member of the Senate of Pakistan has raised a cogent objection to maintaining parallel civil and military courts: cost. Here is an excerpt from the Express Tribune account:
Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said the military courts were setup for a limited period and the country cannot afford a parallel judicial system for an indefinite period.

Addressing a press conference at Mansoora on Friday, he said if the military courts were the solution for everything, all civil courts should be closed.
