The courts in Pakistan will not punish civilian terrorists after this
Reporter: Firdous Rasouli
Pakistani courts today formally terminate the civilian penal code charged with carrying out terrorist activities. The media outlets have announced that the trial has been stopped due to lack of permission from the parliament.
The tribunal for civilian criminals involved in terrorist incidents was set up by parliament in 2017 with a majority vote, but in 2019, the majority of the ruling parties in the Pakistani parliament decided to cancel these trials.
On December 16, 2014, seven Taliban members who were civilians entered a military school by closing explosives on their bodies and killed at least 150 students and wounded at least another 120 people. This action has triggered the reaction of human rights activists in Pakistan, as the cases referred to these courts are now in a state of emergency.
