The Pakistani Senate objects

The Pakistani Senate Secretariat has issued a remarkable statement faulting parts of the media for giving the impression that the legislature had waited until the last moment to deal with the scheduled expiration of the 21st Amendment, which authorizes military courts to try civilians. Here is the Express Tribune's account. Have a look and ask yourself if you think it answers the mail. Is it an effort to shift blame to the National Assembly?

The military courts amendment expires in 9 days, but the text of the responsive legislation appears not to be available.
