ISLAMABAD: Lahore High Court (LHC) Bar has filed review petition in Supreme Court (SC) against the apex court’s decision in the case of the 21st constitutional amendment and establishment of military courts .

The federation and the provinces have been made respondents in the review petition filed by LHC bar. The petition said that military courts and 21st constitutional amendment constitute sheer violation of basic structure of the constitution and fundamental rights. Eliminating terrorists, arresting and interrogating them and ensuring award of punishment to them is the responsibility of the executive. If it is done so then it is failure of administration rather than judiciary.

It has been further said in the petition that through the establishment of military courts , fundamental rights of individuals have been restricted and the right to fair trials has also not been given, therefore the court should review its decision.
