The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday suspended the death sentences awarded by military courts to three convicts. A three-judge apex court bench headed by Justice Azmat Saeed issued a notice to the Interior Ministry in this regard. The three convicts — Tahir Ali, Habibul Rehman and Saifullah — were accused of killing two army officials in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 2009. The Peshawar High Court (PHC) had earlier rejected the convicts’ appeals. The hearing of the case was postponed for an indefinite period of time. Published in Daily Times, September 20th 2018.
