The Supreme Court on Friday suspended the release of 73 prisoners accused of involvement in terrorist activities. The Defence Ministry had filed an appeal against the Peshawar High Court verdict that set aside convictions of 73 persons convicted by military courts on terrorism charges, including suicide attacks and killing of law enforcers and civilians.

In its plea, the ministry maintained that the accused were involved in terrorist activities and sought a stay on their release. It is pertinent to note that the PHC has suspended the convictions awarded by military courts in various cases. The chief of army staff had confirmed the death sentence of the convicts, however, the families of the convicts had challenged the order in the court and it had stayed their execution.
