Odd test case

The case of an Indian convicted of spying may prove an early test of Pakistan's revived military courts. There are lots of open questions, as noted here. Unlike others convicted by these courts, the accused here has a neighboring state energetically on the case. Query: was this case one of the reasons for the urgent push to get the military courts revived? Is a prisoner swap in the works?

Why no lawyer defense counsel? Yet another confession? What will the proceedings before the military court of appeal be like, or have they already taken place?
