Pakistan Military Courts Set up to Charge Civilians for Terrorism Cease to Function After 4 Years


Pakistan’s special military courts, which were set up in 2015 to try civilians on terrorism charges, have ceased to exist after the government failed to get the support of the Opposition to extend their tenure, according to a media report on Monday.
