APS Victims’ Parents Demand Extension In Military Courts’ Tenure
PESHAWAR, 11 January: Mothers of the martyred students of the Army Public School and College Peshawar have demanded of the federal government to give extension to the military courts for the quick trial of arrested terrorists and their facilitators.
Addressing a news conference in Peshawar press club on Wednesday, the martyred students’ mothers said that peace had been restored in the country due to the quick dispensation of justice by the military courts.
They added that acts of terrorism had dropped up to 80 percent in the country as a result of the National Action Plan.
They demanded of the federal government to further extend the tenure of the military courts, saying if the government wrapped up the military courts, it would not only disappoint the general public, it would also be tantamount to betraying the sacrifices of the APS students.
